The Metabolic Landscape
The Metabolic Landscape is a beautifully illustrated, fascinating and engaging exploration navigating the disciplines of art, science and philosophy to picture and interpret the planet's current state of metabolic distress. Humankind's search for more powerful sources of energy to sustain an urbanising existence has created an energy transition that, while hugely beneficial to human existence, is now being identified as a source of harm. Just as metabolic disease refers to energy-sourced medical problems, so too the planet, the authors propose, is showing increasing signs of metabolic distress.
