What does it mean to be alive and a part of Nature? All animal and vegetable tissues are made up of a complex collection of cells endlessly at work generating energy for life. In this sense, there is no life without action. All these little parts and drops of goodness ignite the living in our world illuminated by the energy of the sun. We are not mere observers taking measurements and making plans. We are a structured and complex stimulus being, emerged within the patterns and cycles of Nature. These connections and patterns along with their cycles are expressed as a whole through the living. This experience of life, however interconnected and reliant upon parts both big and small, is inevitably singularly perceived.

This is an open call for 2D and 3D artwork that explores the patterns and connections found in life which embrace Nature.
