Hylozoism, the belief that all matter contains life, dates back to the Greek philosophers although it had a resurgence during the Renaissance.

My interpretation of this was to make a small interactive piece, with amorphous cell-like "life" pulsing and following the mouse cursor.

I made a few mockups in Sketch first, to set some of the look and feel. Icons are courtesy of the Noun Project Hylozoism Intro Hylozoism Main
