Echo / Daniel Canogar from Daniel Canogar on Vimeo.

Echo: ‘The artist has observed a substantial change in our relationship with screens. From small wrist devices that monitor our biorhythms to monumental LED billboards that wrap around buildings, we are surrounded by their flickering and bright surfaces. Screens are acquiring a new materiality, a membrane quality that extends over multiple surfaces, objects and buildings. The “Echo” series responds to this new concept of screen-skin’

Asalto Small

Asalto Small, 2016 from Daniel Canogar on Vimeo.

Asalto: ‘Since 2009, I have been creating public projects and interventions that recognize the human gesture of crawling as a powerful symbol of overcoming imposed obstacles in one’s life.  Asalto Small, is a projection that is based on approximately 1200 recordings of people crawling in public through New York’s famed midtown crossing, my largest participatory public project to date’ /
