Brandon S. Gellis is a new media artist and educator creating work around contemporary issues of identity, sexuality, ecology and place across intersections of art, science and technology. His creative practice visualizes intimate relationships that span across underrepresented people and communities, and human impacts on the varying species and the landscape. His work, rooted in the digital realm, explores computer generated art blended with a passion of handmade design. Using digital technology Gellis explores modes of communication and interaction through the dichotomies of real-world experiences and their modern, digital interpretations.
His current creative work explores how landscapes can be captured and reimagined through digital interventions, suggestive of the influence that digital technologies have in our lives and continually disconnecting us from the natural world. He questions the value and recognizability of natural species and landscapes as witnessed, augmented and shared via digital technology.
