Alongside screenings and exhibitions, some collaborations take the form of multi-disciplinary projects, conferences or panel discussions, while others take the form of ephemeral artistic presentations.

In "Under Automata" (2017), Eva L'Hoest uses a 3D scanner to capture the sleep of passengers on a long-haul flight, transfigured by the flaws in the recording process, which leads to the hybridisation of bodies and objects. This symbiotic notion is echoed in his work The Inmost Cell (2020), which fuses human and natural worlds, rural and marine, ruins and memories. Kim Richard Adler Mejdhal's installation, Hour Of Moth (Etude No. II) (2020), also addresses a similar theme, through an ode to nature hummed by the artist - lying on the ground in a forest, accompanied by the rustling of butterfly wings. In all three of these works, the long sequences and travellings question notions of hybrid spaces and temporalities, in a dialogue with the themes of the exhibition "Symbiosium, Cosmogonies spéculatives".
