Using chance I selected the word transformation out of a hat, I then began a long list of connotative definitions. I then ended up at the word shift, which then lead me to the topic of global warming/climate change. After conducting extensive research I compiled 3 narratives: a transcript of Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth, part one of John Christopher’s science fiction thriller The Long Winter, and my own commentary on the current situation of climate change.

I then created Chrysalis, a novel that encompasses all three narratives. I decided to display An Inconvenient Truth and The Long Winter back to back to physically show how they are contrasting in story, they share a back because they share the same general topic of climate change, but one narrative is about the Earth freezing over and the other is about the Earth’s temperature rising. My narrative is weaved into each book, and is displayed in the yellow and pink boxes.
