Transformative Identity of the Creator

Eccentrics, outcasts, and freaks living in their own world or, on the other hand, exceptional people with extraordinary talents? Society’s attitudes toward creativity and creative people raise questions such as: what does it mean to be a creator and when do you become one? Where does creativity begin and how does it intertwine with everyday life? This conceptual project examines the development of the creator’s personality from early childhood in search of answers about the origins of creativity. The project consists of a polyptych four-part book and a digital experience-sharing platform. Symbolic images and texts invite viewers to explore and identify with the creator’s human transformation.
