Intimate Mappings, created by Daniel Canogar in 2001, is based on a material that was at the time a source of experimentation and fascination for the artist, optical fibre. Via a cable, a light projector penetrates the darkness of the human body to observe what is happening on the inside. Thus, multiple projections of microscopic images directed towards the ground reveal the cells and microorganisms that live inside us, and which may be the origin of a life. The active contemplator is an important part of the work. Canogar refers us to medical explorations carried out using the scientific advances in this field of medicine, which used this material to explore the interior of patients, and how that progress conditions human beings and their way of relating to the world around them and their own body.
