This is "Adam" - our adaptation of the most-reproduced religious painting of all time (as Wikipedia says: "iconic of humanity"). Although Michelangelo painted his work in the years 1508-11, people can still find some new values in this incredible painting.
And so we experience prosperity and misery now. We have exponential growth of civilization and intense progress of science on one hand, but wars and destruction of the natural environment on the other. Now we have the power to both: annihilate ourselves and create something ... and this eternal dream of humanity to create an itelligent being can come true (doesn't matter: organic or artificial). I feel that we are very close to the moment when a "human god" will appoint an itelligent being... but.. will he create him in his own image and likeness?
Will the new mind understand and accept our actions?
Or maybe he will discover his own path and leave our vision of paradise?
How overweening and arrogant species we are, if we dream of conquering the space and creating new conscious beings while we kill ourselves and our own planet?
What will we learn from the new "toy"? ...
Adam is still lounging, but soon he will stand up and probably show us something that nobody expects. In this semantic layer our work refers to the book of Stanisław Lem: "Golem XIV".
The necklace was made with the thought of creating a collection of several works connected by a common motif of human-machine relations and referring to works of art that were groundbreaking for humanity. Also groundbreaking for us, because each of these projects mobilizes us to enter new development paths and improve our skills.
An earlier work that will be in this collection is "First Transition", which we prepared for last year's SILVER festival in Legnica.
The weight of silver in this work is 52g.
Dimensions of the decorative part: about 5.2cm x 10.2cm. This silver necklace is large, but thanks to its shape it adorns the feminine neckline harmoniously playing with the collarbone line.
Internal circumference: 40cm.
Most important materials: oxidised silver, gold plated silver, watch parts and japanese Shibori silk. The Creator's Hand was prepared by Stanisław Czarnecki from Stanleysstudio, whom I invited to cooperate.
