Daniel Mariotti recasts visual content to create new references that allow viewers a moment of pause and consideration. With Meditation on Fragmented Space, his intent is to allow the viewer to disrupt their day and see themselves in the context of a public art piece. It is his hope that this piece offers something that resonates with the childlike wonder that pushes him to continue to create art and engage with the world around him. This sculpture is about offering viewers the opportunity to pull one’s self out of their reality into something different.
