DENA is Gaby López Dena working with space through architecture, installation, and film. DENA’s projects, often collaborative, cross disciplinary boundaries. They range from an off-the-grid house built in parallel to a feature-length film about its construction process (Maleza,Ocotitlán House), to a geometric LED veil covering the four facades of a historic building with a subatomic pattern (Xipe Tótec), to a fashion designer’s showroom hidden inside an apartment (Better Than Naked).
DENA also produces work for other architects and visual artists. These projects include the fabrication of a self-supporting structure in which steel rods cross bronze heads (Fractal Zoo), the production of an experimental film about Monarch butterflies in a sacred forest (INCOMPLT), and the design of a massive puzzle-like installation with the aesthetics of art shipping crates (I Transport).
DENA started in Mexico City but now has a foot in Brooklyn. Please feel free to get in touch; DENA is always happy to hear from you!
