Neuston. Experiment 1. Exploring the Interface

Neuston is the collective term for the organisms that float on the top of water or live right under the surface, in the interface between water and air. Taking this as a metaphor, the project explores the interface science-art, prompting a dialogue which involves scientific researchers and artistic and literary creators concerned with the sea and with Galicia’s marine scientific environment.
