SDG 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure

Artist Name: Steven Meunier

Statement: 

“Metamorphosis of Progress”

Within the brushstrokes of this painting, a tapestry of transformation unfolds, capturing the essence of innovation and the passage of time. A floating city emerges as a beacon of progress, embodying the spirit of ingenuity that propels societies forward.

As the sky transitions from the gentle hues of dawn to the radiant brilliance of daylight, the shifting colors mirror the evolution of time itself. This progression is not just the march of hours, but a reflection of the evolution of industry and energy sources.

Amidst this urban landscape, a subtle homage to the past takes form—the reference to the cathedral of Rodrigues. This colonial architecture stands as a testament to history, a reminder of the legacy that shapes the present. The juxtaposition of the cathedral against the modernity of the floating city echoes the duality of progress, inviting contemplation on the threads that connect the past, present, and future.
