This paper indicates the need to pass from a creativity "as if" it was a representation to an inevitably embedded creativity, situated in a place and in a culture. The origin of creativity is an autonomous motivation through which human beings find the opportunity to express themselves in the contingencies of development. The quality of the "relational field" that is proposed as a container of im-agination and creativity is particularly relevant. The gesture of an artist who shapes his work is a metaphor for the human gesture in the world and the source both of the creations and of the aesthetic fruition: homo sapiens does not accept the world as it is, but continuously creates it in its own image and likeness.
Keywords: Creativity, human mind, representation, relationship, container, work of art, acknowledgement, embodiment, symbolization, aesthetic fruition.
