Cement Eclipses

London sculpture artist Isaac Cordal has created the beautiful book Cement Eclipses.
Since 2006 he has placed tiny human figurines throughout London as street art.
Cordal captures many emotions in his mini vignettes. His concrete figurines can be found waiting for buses, at family funerals, just waiting, amid tragedy, and on vacation. Their placement is magical and easily missed.

So Cordall's men in grey are a little message of hope in spite of their forlorn appearance and they are there to remind you that pessimism is not common sense, it's just pessimism. So make sure you do something inessential today. Go on, the grey men don't want you to.
