The exhibition features works by Sam Auinger & Bruce Odland, Agnieszka Brzeżańska, Peter Cusack, Edith Dekyndt, Aurélien Froment, Douglas Henderson, Liz Magor, Allan Sekula, and Shimabuku, creating a framework for readings by Jeffrey Yang, Habib Tengour, and Sergio Raimondi, as well as discussions with composers Clara Iannotta and Peter Cusack, initiators of the online channel inhabitants, and biological oceanographer and managing director of the German Marine Research Consortium Rolf Peinert.
