51 cultures in Petri dishes are obtained from 17 samples taken during an event organized as part of the experimental project Initiatives Systémiques. The intervention site (an apartment) is transposed into the exhibition space and represented by the living organisms that inhabited it.

The work grows uninterrupted during its duration of display, showing an ever-changing representation of the habitat from which it comes.
