Daniel Canogar uses art installation as a vehicle that reanimates the lifeless, reviving a collective portrait of secrets contained in discarded electronic materials. In Hipocampo, the ephemeral lifeblood of a telephone signal serves as a metaphor for technological mortality and memory. A relic in the age of information, the wires in this work were found in a dumpster near the artist's home. Flickering with light, the illuminated color cabling in this sculpture evokes neural synapses firings in the brain and crackling communications - reminding us of our own fragile bodies and natural information exchanges.
