Daniel Canogar, born 1964 in Madrid, is an artist who uses discarded electronic materials in his photography, video, sculpture and installations, which construct portraits of a society and technological age. Finding inspiration in the archeology of new media, Canogar brings these dead objects back to life, revealing their contained secrets.
