The Greenpeace Expo by De Organisatie is a lighting installation at the Rotterdam Zoo Oceanium. Shining a light on marine life reserves and their benefits, this aquatic exhibit aims to educate while allowing its visitors to experience sensory space.

Creating an abstract aquatic world, designer Kimmo de Reuver creates an illuminated structure that changes from blue to red. While the blue exhibit represents life with marine reserves, its crimson counterpart represents a world without them.

This environmentally centered concept allows its visitors to understand the benefit of the reserves and the potential risks involved if they did not exist. Through the transformation of space, the Greenpeace Expo by De Organisatie explores the evolution of aquatic life forms and their need to be protected in the ever-changing world.
