This Idea owes much to [DrCurry] who made a comment in another place (no not the house of commons!, see link)
Get a bunch of good quality, durable web cams set up in hides all over the world. Select the positioning of these cams so that they are likely to be pointing at wild animals most of the
time; put them in areas of great biodiversity, in puffin colonies, put night vision cams in badgersets, in the great barrier reef, so on and so forth.
Next take a nice oak panelled hallway gallery. Hang big ol' screens on the wall in picture frames. link each to a web cam. And there you have it, not so much a still life as, well, just life.
The pictures could be positioned all around a house on the same basis that ordinary art is, to match the colouring of the room. So a screens that will display polar sceens could be used in a white bathroom etc.
The good Dr's inspirational comment
Maybe one of the screens could be of sea seals petering off into the distance [Zircon, Sep 03 2002, last modified Oct 05 2004]

||Having mused on this before, I do think you want higher quality pictures than the average webcam provides, possibly dedicated TV channels.
||How about a view of a cattle ranch as I masticate a steak in the dining room?
