Paraxis 03: Transformation

Transformation has hooked storytellers and writers, listeners and readers across the ages. In her book Fantastic Metamorphoses, Other Worlds, Marina Warner discusses the many roles of metamorphosis in literature and art, ‘as divine fantasy, as vital principle of nature, as punishment, as reprieve, as miracle, as cultural dynamic, as effect of historical meetings and clashes, as the difference that lures, as the lost idyll, as time out of time, as a producer of stories and meanings.’

The possibility of other lives draws us to fiction, and the fantastic possibilities of tales of transformation allow our imaginations to inhabit the impossible. Paraxis 03 brings you short stories, artwork and essays that explore what it means to be transformed.
