METAMORPHOSIS records a moment of profound change: the loss of one world, and the birth of another. Forest fires consume communities, species vanish, and entire ecosystems collapse. Economic growth, tied to speed of resource extraction, has created a machine with the capacity to destroy all life. But this is also a transformative opportunity. METAMORPHOSIS carves a path from the present to the future, offers a bold new vision, and provides some visually stunning artistry along the way. Swimming pools are repurposed into self-sustaining gardens. Installing solar panels in underserved neighbourhoods provides cleaner energy to families. There is hope!
