Photography and Original Illustration Contest – Global Oneness Project
Inspired by the writing of Robin Wall Kimmerer, this contest was an invitation for students to take a photograph or create an original illustration that reflects the spirit of reciprocity and kinship with the living world.
A member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, Kimmerer’s work draws on the wisdom of plants. She asks, “How, in our modern world, can we find our way to understand the earth as a gift again, to make our relations with the world sacred again?”
As students continue to be challenged by the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, we asked them how they might bear witness and listen to the living world in new ways. Students made keen observations and described that the Covid-19 pandemic allowed them to engage more fully with the living world outside their doorsteps. FOR MORE
