Information about the Speakers:

Daniel Canogar's technological artworks attempt to provide a physical experience of intangible phenomenon: brain synapses, memory, the flow of information through the Internet and most recently the ever-growing presence of Big Data. His recent work includes Asalto New York, a video-projection on the façade of an abandoned factory in Brooklyn, NY; “Latidos”, a solo exhibition at Espacio Fundación Telefónica Buenos Aires; “Vórtices”, an exhibition exploring issues of water and sustainability at the Fundación Canal Isabel II in Madrid; Synaptic Passage, an installation commissioned for the exhibition "Brain: The Inside Story" at the American Museum

Chris Edgette has recently written and produced I’s, an independent narrative feature film shot in San Francisco and Seattle.
