"Related to this discussion. I am trying to get hold of structurally coloured slime moulds (ie other species from the usual). There are a lot of these *but* they are not easy to grow (in fact many probably can't be). These have beautiful…"

Looking for a feasible way to conduct experiments relating to slime molds fixing existing transportation systems especially in Atlanta, Georgia (U.S.)

Existing research done in transportation regarding slime molds refers to some sort of way or model in which one analyzes the growth of slime mold.After finding and reading research in this matter I couldn't understand how this is being analyzed is it through some sort of machinery/scanners or self-created mathematical models and observations.I mainly refer to ask a way in which I could conduct some research regarding the topic mentioned above without much scientific equipment and resourcesAny…See More

slimoco activity

I’m keen to activate the network more and want to hear your thoughts.I’ve always wanted The Slime Mould Collective to be self-organizing and low maintenance (as any slime mould network should be), but I’m aware that a network feeds on activity and that we all need a little encouragement now and again. Up to now I have purposefully kept it separate from other social networks (though there is of course a sister slimoco on facebook), but I am keen to know how others would like to see slimoco…See More

"Thanks Ian! I got in touch with the people from Backyard brains to check if the Spiker for plants was suitable, they rather doubt the device can take reading from the slime (electric potentials between -10 to 15 mV in periods of 40 min). They said…"

"Thanks a lot for your reply Ian and all three references. This plant spiker set is interesting, it seems more DIY than the E. Braund and E. Miranda experimentation. Good luck with the spiker set on slime! "

"Hi A few people have done things using the electrical properties of physarum ( https://www.semanticscholar.org/paper/BioComputer-Music%3A-Generating-Musical-Responses-Braund-Miranda/2d280f6db25781ada1284f2d76812583af510d5b) to generate sound. I…"

Programmable Interface for Physarum Polycephalum

Anybody knows about programmable interfaces using Physarum Polycephalum? I am interested in knowing of technical solutions applicable for artistic production and/or  sound performance. See More
