We are an art collective that crosses microbiological systems (slime mold) with AI in digital artworks, using text. Our project was selected to be displayed in Singapore in early October at NTU as part of the Global Digital Art Prize.
We are looking for a microbiologist and also (importantly) slime mold in Singapore for the artwork. We are hoping we can locate a microbiologist and lab (ideally at NTU where the exhibition will be held but another university would also be terrific). We have exhibited this project in different countries and have had the opportunity to work with mycologists in London and in Porto, which has resulted in scientific and cultural exchanges.
I am reaching out to see if you have a contact or would be able to assist in culturing slime mold to assist with our project. More information about the artwork that we will install is at: http://cesarandlois.org/digitalfungus/
Many thanks for your consideration! Lucy (of Cesar & Lois)
