Piloto Nature’s Utensils
Statement by Piloto: My work represents a minimal concept of the basic and fundamental organic utensils that have been utilized over and over through the centuries in the evolution of civilization becoming industrialized. The installation takes a conceptual and critical view of the representation of the social and cultural means of production that have developed to sustain societies in their cyclical development from organic methods to more technical and industrial processes. These elements are denoted in the use of birdseeds, ropes, nails and a nutritional apple. They are displayed in a gallery of plastic museum boxes to represent how these items once often valued are now seen as historical relics in society that is more concerned with industrial progress rather than embracing the basics of sustainability.
