Photographer and sculptor Isaac Cordal creates interesting and mundane artwork from tiny handmade figurines in Cement Eclipses, a dark, dreary photo series. The premise behind the photo series is a critique of human emotion in a mass public experience. The zombie-like sculptures resemble the day-to-day lifestyle of corporate America.
Cordal has quoted the Cement Eclipses as “a collective inertia that leads us to think that our small actions cannot change the course of history.” The sculptures are placed in dismal areas around cities including Berlin, London and Brussels, putting the figurines in puddles, grey beaches and dark streets creates an illusion of heart breaking sadness. This thought-provoking piece symbolizes the strain sorrow has on society as a whole.
