Experimental within contemporary art, Daniel Palacios’ artworks evolve through interactive installations, site-specific engravings and sculptures of data visualization as well as critical design projects. He shows an interest in issues related to natural phenomena in our immediate surroundings, of a certain scientific nature, questioning subjective aspects of perception and investigating the alternative use of materials and production processes; confronting the preconceived ideas of the public and their expectations. His practice has been exhibited internationally in artistic centers such as the Museo Extremeño e Iberoamericano de Arte Contemporaneo, National Art Museum of China, ZKM and Ars Electronica; as well as at the VOLTA and ARCO art fairs. It is part of public art collections such as the Andalusian Center of Contemporary Art and also of scientific institutions such as the Science Museum of London and Science Museum of Barcelona. In parallel to his own production, his studio operates as a production facility focused on helping other artists, designers, and entrepreneurs to produce their projects.
During the talk Daniel will introduce his artistic practice and processes. Also, the projects from other artists, designer, and entrepreneurs that have been produced in his studio will be introduced, this way framing a conversation around art, design, and contemporary alternatives to the mainstream art market.
