"#TedSodamierman No.4" is a “tweet study” for a 15 ft digital scroll drawing Gannis produced throughout 2012. Both the study and the scroll were featured in her last solo exhibition in NYC, "The Multiversal Hippozoonomadon & Prismenagerie", at Pablo’s Birthday. The work is inspired by a twitter project, "Robbi Carni Project (@robbicarni") that Gannis began in January, in which she asked followers to choose a pseudonym, a first and last name, that when string searched provided no Google results. Each participant dm’ed Gannis tweets that she then published on "Robbi Carni" with their pseudonym as a hashtag. In response to users’ tweets Gannis then generated character drawings while Google generated results for these fictitious authors.

From the exhibition press release: “Gannis has chosen a futuristic carnival as the setting and metaphorical armature for our ever expanding online existence. Her carnival is a site, like the internet, of (dis)connection, where multiple narratives play out—some intertwined, some discrete—over time, yet no narrative is foregrounded, and the medium that sustains them ensures their non-linearity.”

PLEASE NOTE: BID INCREMENT IS $20 ON ALL ARTWORKS LISTED ON THIS WEBSITE. YOU MUST BID $20 MORE THAN THE CURRENT BID PRICE IN ORDER TO BECOME THE HIGHEST BIDDER.
