Statement

Fe (faith) consists of a poster made by these two letters in large scale, with iron sheets from the scrap that is thrown in the city’s thrash cans. these two letters, which symbolize the iron element in the periodical table, also form the word describing the group of beliefs of a religion, a person or a group. Faith is a powerful concept, but aimed at something beyond man’s mere physical existence, and it is what helps him rise above that existence. this is a tautological piece because of the use of the material and what it represents, and which at the same time shows faith (also seen as illusion or hope), as a concept that may corrode like the material itself, or that may emerge from the thrash.
