Being Slime Mould: modelling sensory environmental responses
As part of The Lab Project Symposium (exploring multi sensory interaction in art and science), I will be giving a talk and conducting an experiment.
Being Slime Mould sets out to test human capacity for communication and cooperation in comparison with a single celled organism, the slime mould, Physarum polycephalum. Whilst it has no brain or central nervous system, the slime mould demonstrates primitive intelligence and an impressive capacity for collective action and adaptive behaviour. This illustrated talk, experiment and discussion will explore bodies of intelligence, model organisms, and sensory environmental responses - by following some simple biological rules we will observe what complex behaviours may emerge.
The event is free. Full infohere
