The deeply intellectual sculptures of Daniel Fiorda asks the viewer to say no to the established thought process and find hidden, subtle social issues: consumerism, environment or even the struggle against mortality. Here, concrete is both material and symbol. Each sculptural element is almost entirely made of reinforced concrete, cast in the shape of a miniature Brutalist building. These towers feature barely concealed found objects, almost fully engulfed by concrete, and yet still eerily discernible: industrial gears, old cameras and lenses, objects that evoke industrial and pre-digital eras. The overall sense is dystopian rather than apocalyptic. The towers and pseud-pyramids exude authority and uniformity, and the appropriation of old technology into new structures suggests a historical and technological challenge right around the corner, mirroring the ones in our recent past — most definitely a significant notion worth listening to; DanielFiorda.com.
