About the Book
What is change? How does anything go from being one thing to being another thing? Is there a pattern to it or is the process of transformation inseparable from what is being transformed?
These questions are at the heart of The Black Box: An Illustrated Field Guide to Transformation. The book presents four fully illustrated specimens of transformation from the fields of biology, chemistry, mathematics and mythology. From these four specimens, the reader may look past the apparent differences between them to the pattern of structure and movement that unites them all: the face of transformation itself.
The Black Box is for lovers of knowledge, lovers of beauty, and lovers of the deep mystery that surrounds us.
