De 16 à 18h, rejoignez-nous pour une visite guidée spéculative et unique en son genre ; une exploration la logique du vivant sous un angle inédit. Une Nature Parallèle, fictionnelle, à la fois amusante et troublante, riche et absurde, mais qui, en fin de compte, parle toujours du réel.

The guided tour will take place in French. Free access!

The affected bacteria thus followed the pattern of a cactoid formation within the pebble, creating the first micro-organic formations visible to the naked eye today.
