Tomoé Hill

Metamorphosis is a meditation on identity, belonging, and love through clothing. The narrator remembers through the kimonos she and her mother wore, and how they are directly linked to her grappling with and understanding of identity and belonging, whether cultural, physical, social, or emotional. Each section integrates reflections by Roland Barthes, Henri Bergson, Marguerite Duras, or Galen Strawson, on clothing, memory, and grief.
