‘Dinamo’ at Expo Dubai 2020 – Spanish Pavillion

Oct 1 2021 - Mar 30 2022

Daniel Canogar presents one of his most ambitious projects to date: Dinamo, a site-specific audiovisual project designed for the Spanish Pavilion, in Expo Dubai 2020, produced in collaboration with the music composer Francisco López.

The artwork, suspended in the atrium of the main pavilion and surrounded by a descendant and spiral alley, consists of three sculptural screens shaped like interlaced loops that feature generative audiovisual content through the interaction of the visitors and the railing along the ramp. The more contact the rail detects, the more dynamic and colorful the content of Dinamo’ screens will be. Similarly, the sound will be more intense when the interaction is higher. This way, the activation of the artwork is completely in the hands of the visitors. Aligned with the pavilion topic, “Connecting minds, building the future”, Dinamo exemplifies the collective as an alternate energy source for a sustainable future and puts in value the potential of community.
