An artist who uses irony and presentation strategies that employ new communication technologies to question the democratic and equalitarian promises of these media and criticise the desire for control lying behind their apparent transparency. Based on the confirmation that new information and communication technologies are transforming our everyday life, Daniel G. Andújar created a fiction (Technologies To The People, 1996) designed to make us increase our awareness of the reality around us and of the deception in promises of free choice that are converted, irremissibly, into new forms of control and inequality. A long-time member of i rational.org (international reference point for art on the web) and founder of Technologies To The People , he is the creator of numerous projects on the Internet such as art-net-dortmund, e-barcelona.org, e-valencia.org, e-seoul.org, e-wac.org, e-sevilla.org, Materiales de artista, etc. He has directed numerous workshops for artists and social collectives in different countries.
