Also, Carla Gannis' The Garden of Emoji Delights gifs just got a review based on the pop up show She was in last week.
"A particularly playful interpretation of collage was exemplified by the three .gifs by Carla Gannis, displayed on iPads near the entrance to the gallery. Fragments from her ongoing project Garden of Emoji Delights, she digitally collaged emoji symbols and animated characters into Hieronymus Bosch’s painting The Garden of Earthly Delights, (1500-1505). Just as the original painting warned of moral degradation and a loss of innocence whilst relishing the very rapture it depicted, so did Gannis’s playfully sexual .gifs strike an ambiguous note in between the celebration and the condemnation of our hyper-mediated society."
