bitforms gallery is pleased to announce Small Data, a second solo exhibition in New York with Daniel Canogar. Featuring the premiere of a new series, the exhibit includes nine video projection-mapped objects
that are intimate in scale.
The process of excavation is central to Canogar’s practice. Works from his new series Small Data are comprised of overhead projections and salvaged devices, such as crushed computers, scanners, printers, old cell phones and hard discs. The artist pulled each item from piles of discarded materials in junkyards and recycling centers–today’s veritable cemeteries for consumer electronics. The found objects are organized on shelves, as if they were fragile remnants of a bygone era. Light seemingly reanimates these abandoned technologies, as video zrojections are precisely aimed at each object, crafting layered and painterly abstract narratives.
