The Slime Mould Collective

An international network of/for intelligent organisms


I have an idea for a piece of work where I grow slime mould on a photographic paper, probably cyanotype. Does anyone have any tips or ideas towards this project let me know.

Thank you!

I think the cyanotype chemicals won't do them any favours - I once used a tray to grow slime that had previously been used for prepping cyanotype paper and though scrubbed, still had hints of blue. It basically killed the physarum. You could grow on something transparent such as a thin film of agar on glass or a sheet of clear cellophane ( which wets quite nicely ) and do a contact print.
