hARTo is a conceptual pathological idea toward the declining and corrupted economy in europe and the world in general.
The piece is done out of recycled cardboard found in the streets and other found materials such as newspaper, glue and paint. This is done to represent the idea of a giant monstrous form deconstructing itself symbolizing the economy and human greed. Especially after my own experience of demonstrations against Zapatero in Spain, Sarkozy in France, etc… with new laws against the working class and higer percentage of unemployment have made it obvious the true intentions of the government and also the public themselves. George Orwell’s “Animal Farm” is an influence as well as Carlos Ruiz Zafon’s “La Sombra del Viento”. Quotes from these books, as well as my personal ideas are spread throughout sporadically in the piece.
