The Earth Would Die If The Sun Stopped Kissing Her (2022)

Eman Ali's contribution to The World Today 10k project, The Earth Would Die If The Sun Stopped Kissing Her, is an intimate collection of stories that weave together to explore our human presence on Earth. The project investigates our connections, roots, our relationship with nature, and the future we are building.

Throughout the project's one month duration, the artist engages in a contemplative examination of her surroundings in Oman, moving between private interior spaces and the ordinariness of the everyday. Ali draws inspiration from her daily drives in and out of the city, revealing a convergence between humanity and nature, and highlighting the presence of absence.

The work captures our connection to the Earth, celebrates individuality and human flaws, and touches on themes of separation, death, and the possibility of life beyond our world. 

Ali showcases a collection of individuals from the region - artists, friends, and strangers she encounters - whom she captures and honors for their beauty and individuality.

The Earth Would Die If The Sun Stopped Kissing Her, a collection of 100 imagesis thus an explorative and instinctive project that documents like a diary the daily intimate experiences of the artist and pays tribute to the land on which she lives.
