In the 21st century, the conversion of agricultural crops, lack of innovation and the ignorance of the art of production is leading to the eventual disappearance of local arts such as the production of wicker in Chimbarongo, Chile. Wicker Metamorphosis is a project that imagines a solution to this crisis.
