Love this artist's work, Myeombeom Kim. Apparently her work is influenced by this concept: Hylozoism is the philosophical point of view that all matter (including the universe as a whole) is in some sense alive.
Something I learned about this week, Sahel Dynamics. What is the Sahel?
The Sahel is the semi-arid transition region between the Sahara desert to the north and wetter regions of equatorial Africa to the south. It extends from the Atlantic in the west to the Indian ocean in the east. It has high variability of rainfall, and the land consists of stabilized ancient sand seas. It is one of the poorest and most environmentally degraded areas on earth.
