The human being as a conscious manifestation of the universal thought. This is the concept from which Guido Sitta and David Damiotti started in creating Humanas, an artistic project that explores the human mind and its connection with the universe.
Humanas evokes the connection between HUMAN – from English, human being – and MANAS – from Sanskrit, the Universal Mental Principle, the infinite and unlimited intelligence that permeates everything that exists.
Hence the artistic creation becomes a search for the divine in human, for what makes him eternal in his temporary manifestation. It is the aspiration to that unlimited reserve of strength and wisdom that can be unconditionally tap into and that is there even when it can’t be seen.
Artistic condensation of a conceptual research, the jewel becomes a symbol of the inherent potential in human nature, a means of creating a connection with the most hidden aspect of the self, free from any prejudice, an inspiration towards awareness of one’s uniqueness.
