The Earth is a viscous fluid. A state of constant flux reigns over what we believe to be solid. Even the earth core, long held among sismologists as the most solid of all solids, is nothing else than a gigantic connective cell which transports matter from one side of the planet to other.
In 1912, geologists developped the hypothesis of an initial continent, the Pangea which divided in multiple fragments under the effect of the intern activity of the planet.
Since then, we know tectonic plates flow over a sea of melted rocks. Anaïs Tondeur went on the traces of this process which unflods over millions years.

Since 2013, she engages on a series of walks on the meeting line of tectonic plates. She followed the frontier between the Pacific and the American plates, between the North American and Eurasian plates. She went down the non submersed part of the Mid Atlantic ridge and brought back a sample from the continent which she extract the inner noise.
