(Im)potence.
Impotent / impo'tɛnte / [from lat. impŏtens-entis]. Which does not have the ability, the ability, to do something. Imped, unable, unable (of) ineffective.
Potenza (ant. Potènzia) [from lat. Potentia, der. Of potens -entis "powerful"]. In a generic sense, the powerful being, the fact of power; In a relative sense, the characteristic, the condition of who can a certain thing; Be in the condition of performing a certain act, be capable of certain acts or effects.
Impotent but powerful at the same time.
The man, right to the Earth, is not comparable to a crumb of bread, compared to that immensity of creation. But, being nothing in comparison, he is capable of destroying that beauty. It is capable of carrying out acts of destruction, self-destruction. The act is represented in the work presented. The act of performing inhuman gestures against nature, creation. Because man exists for the same destruction.
And he is helpless but powerful at the same time.

Chi è creativo stabilisce un rapporto ambiguo con la realtà che lo circonda in quanto, anche se facente parte di essa, ne modifica l'intensità creando mondi, suoni,forme che altrimenti non esisterebbero quindi... in qualche modo le disobbedisce. Un po' come un ragazzino che al contrario di quanto gli dica la mamma prende la sua bici e va alla scoperta...
