Daniel Canogar, ‘Flow’, 2011, bitforms gallery

Flow is an installation composed of used sanitary equipment of the sort found in nearly any home in the developed world today. The objects are arranged so that water runs gently and sonorously through them in a circuit, as in a fountain, while human figures are projected into the equipment as in a water-park. These figures are being swept along against their will by the waterʼs current.

About Daniel Canogar

Sifting through dumpsters to find materials, Daniel Canogar creates works out of discarded pieces of moribund and current technological hardware, from light bulbs and VHS tapes to DVDs and fiber optic cable. Canogar’s installations offer commentaries about the speed and regularity of obsolescence in the world of consumer technology. The artist’s 2010 installation Spin featured films projected onto the DVDs from which they were ripped, creating reflections on facing walls, and accompanied by their dissonantly layered soundtracks.

Spanish, b. 1964, based in Spain
