While since the dawn of time humans have relied on divine fate, science has recently made us realise how much our daily choices are defining our future world. Faced with the dilemma of losing our immediate comfort or our lasting well-being provided by our ecosystems, we could then wonder which path are we going to choose. How are our societies going to improve their resilience ? Are technologies going to save us ? Or are we going to achieve transcendence ? By observing the metamorphoses of natural, urban and social landscapes, this project aims to highlight the paradox between growth and restraint, between urban sprawl and nature preservation, between limited resources and doubtful innovations to create a reflection on our current and future decisions.
