Upon my arrival in Victoria in 2022, I started working on CHRYSALIDE, and on how to express the concept of change and the strong emotions linked to it.
I should explain that my partner’s firm transferred him to BC and we were uprooting ourselves from Ontario, from our friends and family.
The metaphor of a chrysalis, a butterfly emerging from a caterpillar, came to my mind. That necessary act of transformation was the perfect image and reminder that embracing changes in our lives is the only way to move forward. Now, with a little more perspective, I would further say that change is the essence of life.
