The viewer enters the space with installed interface that allow virtual exploration of this biotope. Inside the interface there are sensors that detect changes in their spatial position and angle. Information received from the sensors is translated to the rhythm and movement of organisms in biotope. Original appropriated organic shape is multiplying, forming and randomly growing according to the principle of “feedback” effect in order to result new unique shapes. Almost organic waves and rhythmic movement gives the feeling of aliveness, influence of gravity and other external forces of life. Perforated surface is layering and forming a shell of negative space.  Biotope is an evolutionary experiment that allows a visitor exceptional opportunity to create or discover a new virtual species.
