Eclipses de Cemento es una definición fundamental de nuestro comportamiento en tanto que masa social. La obra de arte tiene la intención de llamar la atención sobre nuestra relación con la naturaleza devaluada a través de una mirada crítica a los efectos colaterales de nuestra evolución. Con el toque maestro de un director de escena, las figuras se colocan en lugares que abren las puertas rápidamente a otros mundos. Las escenas hacen un zoom sobre  las tareas rutinarias del ser humano contemporáneo.

Waiting for Climate Change
May 11, 2014, by Joan Sullivan
Artists and Climate Change

Galician street artist Isaac Cordal has nailed it. Perfectly, precisely, poetically, politically: Passivity.

We, the collective we, seem to be waiting passively for someone else to “do something” about climate change. Someone else to think. Someone else to act. Someone else to lead. Not me. Not now. No way.

“Waiting for climate change” is Cordal’s 2012 masterpiece. Described as a “Lilliputian army which attests to the end of an era” by David Moinard, Cordal’s miniature clay figurines – no larger than 25 cm – stand passively on Flemish beaches, some up to their necks in sand, as if waiting for the inevitable rising seas to swallow them whole.
