The 2016 Lumen Priize-winning artist speaks on her digital collage
Earthly Delights , exhibited at Baruch’s New Media Artspace.  A reception follows. 

In a collage and remix practice she calls “Internet Gothic,” Brooklyn-based artist Carla Gannis cuts and pastes from the threads of networked communication, Googleable art history, and speculative fiction to illuminate potentialities of democratization and alienation in technology. Since 2003, Gannis’s work has appeared in numerous solo and group exhibitions both nationally and internationally. Her most recent solo exhibitions include A Subject Self-Defined at TRANSFER Gallery, New York, 2016; and The Garden of Emoji Delights at Real Art Ways, Hartford, CT, 2015. Her work has been featured in press and publications including, The Creators Project, Wired, FastCo, Hyperallergic, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and The LA Times, amongst others. She has participated on numerous panels regarding intersections in art and technology including “Let’s Get Digital” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York in 2014. Her speculative fiction was included in DEVOURING THE GREEN:: fear of a human planet: a cyborg / eco poetry anthology, published by Jaded Ibis Press. Her augmented reality artist book The Selfie Drawings was awarded the Founder’s Award from the 2016 Lumen Prize. Gannis is faculty and the Assistant Chairperson of the Department of Digital Arts at Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, New York.
