A project inspired by one of Kafka’s best-known works, The Metamorphosis,  where the main character wakes up one morning to find himself inexplicably transformed into a huge insect and consequently how he struggles to adjust to this new condition.
This transformation instead, seems to be quite the opposite process, because Tom has been similar to an insect wrapped in a cocoon for years, waiting for the right conditions to shyly start showing his human aspect.
The common thing in both circumstances  is the crucial moment of transformation because it is a moment of discomfort anyway, where questions and doubts arise, creating uncertainties until there is an adjustment to the new identity.
Tom’s metamorphosis is still not completely defined yet, it is not happening just overnight like Kafka’s character….he still looks like in a dormant state, partially unaware of what is going on, but at the same time unable to stop the process of transformation.
