Un(s)even: Day Six, by dhr

(a detail)

Adam as . . .  Tasso won't show you. In his de-constructivist approach in Il Mondo Creato, Man is handled as a laboratory specimen to be examined: his sense organs, lungs, etc. Adam has no personality of his own, he won't even say a word except one quotation from the Bible. And yet, Tasso provides a revolutionary insight into original sin.
