In his own words his talk will cover: 

A dozen years ago, with a few colleagues I imagined the Tara Oceans expedition, an exploration of plankton in all oceans of the world, the results of which are still a source of new discoveries. To accompany and popularize the expedition, with my son Noé, we imagined “Plankton Chronicles”, an art and science project which included a web site, videos, photos, exhibits & installations, a book and workshops. In the last few years I’ve been writing and drawing about cells and evolution for the publication of a new book. Book here.
