In 2004, curiosity drove a team of scientists on the Norwegian research vessel G.O. Sars to study the vast, unexplored depths of the north Atlantic Ocean to learn about the creatures that live there and answer the following questions: How do they survive? How do they interact? How can we protect them? This exhibition retraces this team of scientists' journey into this relatively undiscovered world using art, images, models, and multimedia.
