Daniel Canogar’s Mesmerizing Projections

Canogarinstallation9 Canogarinstallation11 Canogarinstallation

“My most recent sculptural installations are constructed with discarded electronic materials: computer, telephone and electric cables, thousands of burnt-out bulbs, meters of videotape, old slot machines, celluloid, DVDs, etc. The installations explore the short life expectancy of the technologies we cast off and their relationship to organic mortality.

These installations also seek to reanimate the lifeless. Light animations projected onto the installations appear to free the energy stored in the electronic waste, awakening in it memories of its past.

Through my work I try to bring dead materials back to life, reveal their secrets, revive the collective memory they contain to construct an accurate portrait of a society and an age.” – Daniel Canogar.

Cinematic Photographs Of Turn-For-The-Worst Moments By Alex Prager

The work of Alex Prager has always been dramatic…or perhaps the correct word is ‘cinematic’.  It may not be surprising that in addition to being a photographer, Prager is also a film maker.  His newest series of photographs, titled Compulsion, resemble movie stills the moment the film takes a turn for the worst.  The images capture a distressing unresolvable anxiety.  However, there is also a strangely pleasant disaster-flick aesthetic found in the images.  The photographs underscore the prettiness and predictability of dramatized demise.  [via]
