Dive into the ocean and drift off to faraway galaxies

Les Macronautes invite you to explore the infinitely small and the infinitely large by traveling beyond water and sky, through plankton and stars!

At the invitation of the Biosphère, the art group presents Cosmic Plankton, an immersive audiovisual installation that encourages us to cross the barriers of the invisible and discover a throng of lively beings: underwater plankton.

Dive into the ocean and drift off to faraway galaxies. Push back the limits of human perception as you travel into different dimensions, where the world of plankton and the cosmos are surprisingly similar! Wonder in awe at these mysterious worlds that blur the lines between the infinitely small and... infinity.
