Emptiness of Shark

The nexus of art, technology and spirituality is the core of Michael Cardacino's work and being.

  Emptiness of Shark   Michael's new sculptures show the power and capabilities of new technologies that include 3D computer design, 3D digital printing, metallurgy and engineering.  The artist has taken advantage of developments in 3D technologies, where imaginative three dimensional objects are developed from digital files. Through experiments with various materials Cardacino has created beautiful and captivating sculptures.  The shark's “skin” is made of the repeated word, shark. Consider what is appearing in our mind regarding “shark”.  When we think, “shark,” our minds connect to an infinite variety of things, each with their own conditions: ocean, other fish, swimmers, “Jaws,” “Shark Tank,”,danger, beauty, conservation, fear, etc.  The hollow sculpture and repeated name can move viewers to see that shark is a big fish, yet realize that the psychological construct we mentally create which “sees” a shark, colors our observation. We can conclude that conditioned thoughts we bring to the world color it, causing our actions and reactions.
