The Metabolic Landscape

The Metabolic Landscape Book

We’re pleased to make available copies of The Metabolic Landscape, a beautifully illustrated, fascinating and engaging book by Gina Glover, Geof Rayner and Jessica Rayner, 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.

With 128 pages with 118 black and white and colour illustrations, this book has been made available through Fermynwoods Contemporary Art to accompany Gina and Geof’s recent Free Exchange discussion, Art + Energy Transition.

A limited number copies of The Metabolic Landscape are available from our online store for just £20 including P&P, with funds helping Fermynwoods to continue to support life through art.
