I am Daniel Palacios, Spanish artist and designer based in Berlin, running my studio for 10+ years.
With a background in Fine Arts and three Master degrees related to Art & Technology and Public Art, my projects have been featured and collected in museums around the world such as the London Science Museum, ZKM and the National Art Museum of China; as well as worked regularly in advertising campaigns for clients such as Nike and Adidas.

Strong believer of learning by making, besides my practice I founded a production studio aimed to help fellow artists, designers, and entrepreneurs to realize their own projects and I teach students in Universities and Cultural Centres related to Art & Technology as well as give private lessons in my own studio.

My work

Experimental within contemporary art, often taking shape as site-specific data-visualization sculptures, new media immersive installations and critical design projects, my practice consists of works that challenge its audience’s preconceptions and expectations; questioning aspects of perception, memory, time and space in the post-digital age.

My fascination for this line of work emerges from a methodical exploration of the world. I take advantage of the technical precision of execution to enforce a subjective reproduction of reality, creating intuitively understandable experiences which provoke new ways of thinking about the object, its function, and the surrounding environment. I enjoy exploring the limits of what we know and what we perceive, embracing subjectivity to produce experiences that lead to a better understanding of the world around us.
