Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois
Métamorphoses is a mixed media installation that is intended to suggest a mix of alternative landscapes and 'life forms', in various stages of transformation, mutation and flux. It is inspired by Stephen Hawking's book 'The Universe in a Nutshell' and with the idea that the universe has multiple histories. How should a different History look and feel like?
Images taken from our nearby Natural environment are progressively broken down into small 'building blocks', recomposed, recombined, and digitally programmed using random scripts to seek out new representational models that speak of chance and growth. A world that balances between its fragmented parts is coming to existence. A place where the macro meets the micro, the past meets the present and the futuristic, and where forms and meanings are in a constant state of regeneration and flux. In this place it is the random encounters and unexpected connections that matter the most.
The exhibition was curated by Caroline de Watteville, head of cultural activities of the CHUV.
