  • Daniel Iregui is a Montreal-based New Media artist who creates interactive sculptures, immersive spaces, and architectural interventions using technology as both a tool and an aesthetic. He works with the infinite and random combinations produced by interactive systems that the audience influences and transforms; the interaction between the human being and technology has always been his focus since the very beginning. In 2010 Daniel founded Studio Iregular, an interactive content creation studio based in Montreal (Canada) where he produces his own artistic works as well as commercial commissions. Since its inception, Daniel has been running this studio and acting as Artistic Director for all undertaken projects. Studio Iregular has produced over 40 interactive installations and won more than 30 awards for its innovative works, including the grand NUMIX prize awarded to the piece DELETE in 2017. iregular.io
