In Metamorphosis cogs belonging to outdated industrial mechanisms are gradually obscured over time, growing curiously bizarre and calcified. For anything to be correctly electroplated it must be weighed down. Over time these weights grow in unexpected and uncontrolled ways. Metamorphosis simply reinterprets these weights so that they may have a lifetime after their function to industry has been served.
By reinventing this normally discarded outgrowth of the electroplating process, Metamorphosis allows a chance encounter to transform the legacy of objects so that they may be restored and retained well into the future.
