The European project "More-than-Planet" (2022 - 2025) gives voice to the imaginaries of planetarity, starting from the observation that it is urgent to re-examine the way people understand and represent the environment. This "Ocean-Space-Ocean" edition of the "More-Than-Planet" symposium series will bring together artists and researchers to question the role of the oceans in planetary balances and the perspectives offered by marine biodiversity in the ecological transition.
The ocean is not a solid, flat and extended surface where supertankers are moving around, burning oil to transport oil, food or manufactured goods. It is not simply a geography of the depths inhabited by a fauna and a flora that would be at the image of what we find on land. In the water column, between the bottom and the surface, lives a multitude of microorganisms playing a central role in the global biogeochemical balance of our planet. Despite our dreams of conquering the solar system, Earth’s ocean is still truly "alien" to us.
