As part of his ongoing dystopian art series, 'Cement Eclipses,' artist Isaac Cordal creates miniature cement figurines and leaves them in public spaces.

While their meaning is not immediately obvious, it is clear that each sculpture has its own story. More often than not, this story appears to be one of tragedy, loss or despair. Cordal describes his art as a commentary on our general disregard for nature, and the future consequences of that disregard.

His artist statement reads, "Isaac Cordal is sympathetic toward his little people and you can empathize with their situations, their leisure time, their waiting for buses and even their more tragic moments such as accidental death, suicide or family funerals."
