Carla Gannis (b. 1970) is an American artist who lives in Brooklyn, NY. She produces transmedia works that consider the uncanny complications between grounded and virtual reality, nature and artifice, science and science fiction in contemporary culture — inviting viewers to experience life “through a digital looking glass” where reflections on power, sexuality, marginalization, and agency emerge. Gannis’s work has appeared in exhibitions, screenings and internet projects across the globe. Recent projects include “Portraits in Landscape,” Midnight Moment, Times Square Arts, NY and “Sunrise/Sunset,” Whitney Museum of American Art, Artport.
