Clearing the EGO is the capacity to expand
I've created this digital art piece as an homage to biodiversity and also inspired by the words of Homaya Amar, a spiritual guide and mentor for healers. During the past weeks, I was listening to one of her masterclasses and I was particularly inspired by her way to analyze the concept of "EGO". What does mean to free ourselves from the EGO? Our Ego is in fact fundamental for self-esteem, and at the same time is what allows us to distinguish ourselves from the world. Homaya considers that clearing the ego is the capacity to expand and perceive ourselves as interconnected beings.
A big circle represents the ego, full of flowers and colors, an ego that is constantly moving. Everything that is inside the circle of ego is encapsulated, but if placed outside, it expands, and all shapes are visible.
EXPANSION is obtained when the ego is cleared, everything that it contains is actually not deleted, but it enlarges and it becomes part of everything.
The technique I've used in Scanography or scanner photography.
I've collected the plants for years and they're part of my collection of plants' biodiversity, anyway I would be really happy to collect leaves and flowers at Boom land in order to create a piece of art using autochthonous plants. Please let me know if this could be an option.
