    FORWARD
    Created by Daniel Iregui
    Produced by Iregular

    Curated by Linda Columbus, Programs Coordinator, Onsite Gallery
    Organized by Onsite Gallery

    FORWARD is an installation of two “tunnels” that generate infinite ways to get to a distant point on the horizon. The work alludes to the future becoming the present, and disappearing. The viewer travels through endless visual tunnels, evoking a feeling of forever propelling forward. Yet, tethered by the physical body, a conflicting sensation of remaining static in the present will remind viewers that: you are “here”. Now.

    FORWARD is a sensory experience of sight and sound that intimates that the present is always only an effervescent instant.

    Daniel Iregui (iregular.io) is a new media artist who creates interactive sculptures, spaces and architectural interventions using technology as a tool and an aesthetic. He works with the infinite and random combinations produced when an audiovisual system is open for the audience to transform it.

    In 2010 Daniel founded Iregular, an interactive content creation studio where he produces his work and commercial commissions. He was born in Bogotá, Colombia in 1981 and currently lives and works from Montréal.
