Cosmic Perspective is a series of video banners created as part of the Artists for Plants initiatives - linked to the UN Declaration proclaiming 2020 as the “International Year for Plant Health” - taking place between 19 to 26 April, with April 22nd been the fiftieth edition of World Earth Day. Cosmic Perspective is created in the spirit of gift and sharing, pollinating the spread of reflection, creativity and art directly into the homes during the covid-19 government imposed isolation period and beyond.
The Cosmic Perspective video banners is a visual meditation, to deeply reflect on our intrinsic connection with nature and to recognise our individual and collective action as a global human race. These reflections and thoughts of recognition; like the title suggests should be seen from a “cosmic perspective”, because we are intrinsically born out of the cosmic process. As the modern yogi, mystic, visionary and poet Sadhguru once said - “Being alive is the greatest phenomenon, not just on this planet, but in the whole cosmos".
To enhance the meditative experience of Cosmic Perspective Man&Wah has provided a selection of links to cosmic tunes, nature soundscapes and talks for listening while viewing the video banners. It will aid in deepening the visual meditation as you descend into the intrinsic connections with nature through a cosmic lens.

About Artist for Plants
Artists for Plants was born in a spontaneous, free and voluntary way - from three of the eighteen artists who participated in the LABVERDE immersive residency program in the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest during August 2019. The conception of this international artistic space dedicated to plants is due to Stijn Jansen (Belgian creative artist), Elisabetta Zavoli (photographer winner of the Earth Photo 2019 award issued by the Royal Geographical Society of London), and Sara Michieletto (first violin of the Teatro La Fenice in Venice), all unaited by a common artistic path and inspired by their exchanges of ideas during their experiences in the Amazon Rainforest.
“Nothing has ever been out of place in this existence.
Things have been out of place in human societies.” – Sadhguru
