This book, which I made for my master, actually relates to what Pythagoras called the theory of the eternal change. ‘Omnia Mutantur, Nihil Interit’ which means, nothing lasts forever and nothing perishes. I used a mirror as a metaphor for this principle.

A mirror has a fixed form but the reflection it shows is constantly going though a metamorphosis. To further illustrate this concept of transformation I used different kinds of text. By combining the images of reflections and mirrors with text, I illustrate the concept of eternal change in their own way. The main text I used is one from Ovidius: ‘Metamorphosis’. I used it at both the beginning and the end of my book to emphasize the reflection within the book itself.

The remaining texts you will find in ‘Omnia Mutantur, Nihil Interit’ were separated into two categories. The first category exists of texts equal to ‘Metamorphosis’ due to their form, they reflect on a visual level. The second category is formed by the remaining texts thats stand on their own. They have already their own graphical treatment and still reflect the concept of reflection itself by their narrative content. ‘Omnia Mutantur, Nihil Interit’ has become an illustration of eternal change through both text and image. This project has won the jury prize at LUCA School of Arts.
