During the Cosmic Plankton expedition, scientists, artists, sailors and lovers of the sea navigate in the Gulf of St. Lawrence from Sept-Iles to Anticosti island. Under skies untouched by light pollution, we explore both infinities using microscopes and telescopes. We encounter the Innu community of Mingan, archeologists unveiling buried artefacts of First Nations, as well as biologists studying whales to ensure preservation of several species.
This mix of arts, science and navigation, inspired publications, paintings, a web series, 2 exhibitions, and a VR film “Voyage vers l’Horizon” by François Guinaudeau, inviting spectators to discover the fragility and immensity of the universe.
