This project builds upon Gina Glover’s research visits to coalmines in the Arctic and geothermal plants in Iceland.
A metabolic disease refers to energy-sourced medical problems like obesity or diabetes. The planet too is revealing signs of metabolic distress: melting glaciers, rising sea levels, coastal erosion, disrupted weather patterns, forest fires, rapidly diminishing biodiversity.
The Metabolic Landscape is Glover’s new series of photographs to be produced as a book in May 2014. Published by Black Dog Publishing, it is co-authored with Geof and Jessica Rayner
