The tactile relationship between the “real” and “virtual” is what Canogar is most interested in. Canogar's work thus captures how we interact with technology, and vice versa, how technology modifies our sense of the world around us and the social fabric of communication and connection. His background in photography has informed his present highly visual artworks, creating seemingly unescapable worlds of his own creation, driven and sourced from data from the “real” world. For Canogar the digital sphere is not a static space to explore, but an ever-changing field, from the physicality of VHS tapes, DVD's, smart phones and hard drives, to the more fluid landscape of the electronic realm.
