We, humans, are visual creatures. Our curiosity comes from what we see, and observations have always been at the heart of science. We are trying to understand how our world works from ancient times by looking at it. Despite our vast progress, we still have a lot to discover. We have satellites to check every square centimetre of land and orbital telescopes to look into deep space. Still, an incredibly diverse yet unknown universe hides beneath water’s surface - the World Ocean. We want to show you the most incredible inhabitants of this unseen world and learn more about our planet together with all the curious minds.
LIVING IN THE FIELD
Being marine biologists and spending most of our time underwater, we call ourselves "Naturalists of the 21st century", armed with the most advanced imaging technologies instead of pencils and field notebooks. We love every worm down there, but our research is focused mainly on plankton: on ethereal, weird and wildly beautiful creatures whose role in the ocean is so huge that we still can't completely understand it. Their lives cannot be studied other than by extensive observation in their natural habitat. And that is precisely what we are doing.
Where art meets science, incredible things happen. Meeting weird alien-looking creatures and documenting their lives, we often get fantastic photos and videos that amaze and inspire people worldwide. To gather everything together and promote our approach to science and visual exploration, we set up Aquatilis Foundation to help everyone engage in science and get an opportunity to discover our world from the new surprising sides.
