Daniel Canogar is an award-winning multidisciplinary artist working across photography, video, sculpture, and installation. Themes of memory and its loss are central to his art. In his most recent data-driven artworks made with sculptural LED screens, Canogar examines the implications of technological changes from material-based media to online platforms. Connected to the Internet, these artworks use live feeds to capture the ceaseless flow of information in today’s world, materializing intangible yet ubiquitous data that affects every aspect of our lives.
Description: Chyron is rendered with the chyrons of news channels, that is, the information superimposed overthe lower part of a screen. The chyrons intertwine like a large frayed fabric, a tangle that evokesthe fragile and at times unstable balance of an information ecosystem created from disparate andeven conflicting sources. Updated in real time, this algorithmic artwork features chyrons of majorinternational news channels, including CNN, Fox News, Bloomberg, BBC News, Reuters, CNBC,Al Jazeera and Le Monde. Chyron belongs to the Pixelweaver series, which draws on textiles as a metaphor for the socialfabric created, and sometimes destroyed, by the news. These artworks pay tribute to the closerelationship between information technology and textiles, beginning with the jacquard’s loom inthe early nineteenth century, considered by many historians to be the first computer. For this newseries, Studio Daniel Canogar has developed a virtual loom based on craft techniques. This algorithmictool enables the creation of a wide range of patterns from different sources or “spools”.
