‘the shovel,’ explains fabio meliota, ‘as a symbol of the intimate relationship between man and nature, becomes in this project a mirror in which to reflect ourselves and a opportunity to be reflected in the ‘nature”. joseph’s mirrors is an aesthetic centerpiece as well as a functional object designed to express the intimate relationship between man and nature.
