Carla Gannis The Selfie Drawings

“The Selfie Drawings,” is a collection of 52 digital drawings that I completed over 52 weeks – a year-long project in which I performed “the self” through drawing and sharing on social networks from January to December 2015. From these drawings I have produced a serialized augmented reality “book object” using 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. I have completed 13 AR experiences so far.
