“The Selfie Drawings,” is a collection of 52 digital drawings completed by artist Carla Gannis over 52 weeks – a year-long project in which Gannis performed “the self” through digital drawings from January to December 2015.

FIRST EDITION ::: 100 Books, signed and numbered by the artist ::: 10×8 in, 25×20 cm, 116 Pages ::: Price $100  Request a Copy

Gannis has produced a serialized augmented reality “book object” in collaboration with UNBOX’s #BehindTheFace project and Blippar AR technologies.

Using the Blippar app, readers can hover over a static drawing and “blip” it. A new dynamic experience then takes place in the screen of their phone. Over the course of 52 weeks beginning in March 2016, readers can check the Blip Log each week to find out which new page is activated.

This collection of Gannis’ digital drawings includes a critical essay on the work written by Dorothy Santos.  The publication accompanies Gannis’ solo exhibition at TRANSFER ‘A Subject Self-Defined‘ featuring a new body of work from Gannis that addresses issues of branded identity; age and body estimation; catastrophe culture; and online agency via static, dynamic and interactive “selfie” imagery.

The hardcover limited first edition print is signed and numbered by Gannis, and is available through TRANSFER for $100 plus the cost of shipping – you can write to the director@transfergallery.com to request your copy.  Digital editions are also available to download online for $10.00.
