This self-portrait is a surreal interpretation and digital visualization of an (in)tangible reality that I strive to grasp. A speculative reality where internal and repressed desires/experiences have no restrictions and where pure creativity might exist. The self-representation is a collage of digital photographs, animations, and physical sculptures. As a direct homage to René Magritte’s painting Son of Man (1964), this work comments on the hidden aspects of life and respective perception. The sculpted head was documented and animated into a speculative (sur)real world of my imagination.
