Artists ponder panpsychism and the 'nature' of consciousness in trees and plants, fungi, bacteria, molecules, and viruses. What is it like to be a rock? How do plants communicate, learn, and remember? When we consider the natural world as having a mind and a conscious experience of pleasure, pain, and visual and auditory phenomena, our thoughts on how we treat and connect with the natural environment are refocused.
