Daniel Canogar “Ooze” Featured in “Mirrors” at Mark Moore Fine Art

DANIEL CANOGAROoze“, 2018, Liquid crystal display, metal structure, computer / Dimensions: 106 x 181cm

Nasdaq (National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotation) is an electronic and automated stock market, in which the securities of companies related to cutting-edge technologies are quoted. The work Ooze shows a generative animation created with the logos of the more than one hundred companies that make up the fund. The vertical movement of the animation faithfully reflects the ascending or descending market value of the companies, updated every ten seconds.
Ooze’s color palette is created with the logos of the companies that are part of Nasdaq. These logos appear liquefied, dissolving their bold designs into a hodgepodge of bright colors, which can momentarly be identified with the “data reveal” button. Being a generative work that never repeats, Ooze tries to capture the incessant flow of financial information that affects us in more ways than we can imagine.
