Life without Sun: Deep Sea

            Transmedial information Concept
About 70 percent of the earth's surface is covered with water, yet the oceans largely remain a mystery for scientists. More is known about the moon's surface than the depths of the ocean. In fact, 12 people have stepped foot on the moon, but only three have been to the Mariana Trench — the deepest part of the ocean.
            This transmedial information concept gives insight into a life without the sun in an extreme habitat — the deep sea. Knowledge transfer generally serves to illustrate abstract data or relationships in a graphic, tangible form. The researched and generated contents are brought into a suitable narrative structure. It follows the concept: from the big picture down to the last detail: from the surface of the water to the depths. Starting with location and formation to the ecosystem, the reader later dives into information about unkown creatures, their need for adaption and the endangerment of this unique habitat.
