Innate Confluences is a visceral, multimedia experience comprised of 3D printed sculptures, laser cut interactive pieces, layered-digital reconstructions of Rocky Mountain and Wyoming landscapes, and original video work inspired by environmental data and the artist's experiences in nature.
In a perfect union of art and science, Brandon Gellis uses 2D and 3D-digital works, critical data visualizations, and geological and ecological data of flora and fauna species to explore the relationship between human and natural ecosystems. These artworks experientially interpret scientific data that show the alterations to the Rocky Mountain West prior to, and since the beginning of the Anthropocene. This period, often referred to as the "Great Acceleration," signifies the heightening of human activity from the start of the Industrial Revolution (1750s) to the present. By lifting the veil on the density of human impact, this body of work allows viewers to build increasingly intimate relationships with their natural surroundings.
Brandon S. Gellis is Assistant Professor of Graphic Design and Emergent Technology at the University of Wyoming.
