CONCRETE BLOKS

Though typewriters, calculators,cell phones, 35mm cameras,etc, have gone into the digital night, Daniel Fiorda has once again created from the basis of detritus.

Challenging the viewer to accept found articles that have been turned into art forms. The observer is asked to find a different angle or viewpoint. Because the original forms may be smashed, cut and/or re-arranged, the onlooker may still recognize their original function, but this is not the intended point of entry to the understanding of the work. Through metamorphosis the found has disappeared.

The artist is asking us to say no to the established thought process. Find the hidden, subtle social issues: consumerism, environment or even the struggle against mortality.
