Prompted by the current situation, we reflect on instances which undergo a process that prevents them from returning to their original state. The potential beauty in the morphed results appears to be both an act of will and a case of chance. We present the works by five artists: Clarissa Tossin, Alberto Oderiz, Hector Zamora, Yara Pina and Emanuel Tovar.
