Sculptures made of mixed materials

The Gym, a space that became so ordinary in our society but confirms every time how our lives are so radically exceeding the current standards for human beings. Training one of the most natural things in the world (our muscles) in such a nonhuman environment (a gym) intrigues me. The sculptures I made are inspired on gym machines an their aesthetics, but they are not be able to use as gym machines. By making sculptures inspired by gym machines, I would like to give the viewer an alienating effect; a surreal set aiming for real life science fiction.
