Self Creation

Nina-Maria Oförsagd

Self Creation is inspired by Michelangelo's Creazione di Adamo, a famous fresco and detail of his large ceiling painting in the Sistine Chapel. In the painting where God is situated and flows with the angels, you can see the shape of one cerebral hemisphere. This detail seems to suggest that the human is the source of the highest knowledge. The ‘self’ is both the creator and a creation.
