2 walls were complete at the opening of the show. 2 walls were left half empty for people to participate and add to the plankton soup.

Participants are invited to draw a plankton species from scientific documents, to make it glow with fluorescent stickers and to tape it anywhere on the wall where there is some space to do so.
One nice surprise was to see how the school of fish got transformed.
