Gust

Gust (2017) is a work by Daniel Canogar.

Gust is a screen made with flexible LED tiles, a technology that allows the artist to create curved  screens. The generative animation reacts in real time to local wind speed and direction. The artist has observed a substantial change in our relationship with screens. From small wrist devices that monitor our biorhythms to monumental LED billboards that wrap around buildings, we are surrounded by their flickering and bright surfaces. Screens are acquiring a new materiality, a membrane quality that extends over multiple surfaces, objects and buildings. The "Echo" series  responds to this new concept of screen skin.

"Echo's" screens seem to melt, drained by our overzealous need to represent the world. In their  undoing, they discover a new role as creatures that no longer represent but sense their  ecosystem. Connected to the Web, they perceive planetary phenomena that escape our sensory  possibilities, and yet are so vital to our survival as a species.
