2009 Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis explores how we have become separated from the natural world, both in terms of our surroundings and how we perceive and manage our time. While seasons and time awaken powerful instinctive responses in us, the spaces in which we currently live and work do not reflect the changes outside to allow these effects to take place. Metamorphosis demonstrates how we have become detached from nature and the effect it has on our sensory experience and lifestyle.

Within the themes Light, Air, Sound and Body, design concepts have been created that view the home as a filter to limit air pollution, electromagnetic smog, and industrial noise penetrating our living and working space while letting in natural light, air and sound. The concepts work as a filter between people and the natural world from which, over time, people have become detached.
