Event Description

LEARN HOW TO DESIGN WITH NATURE

Join UK artist Heather Barnett to discover the fascinating role that slime mould plays in the cultures of science and art, and participate in a practical experiment to test its navigational abilities.

Physarum polycephalum is a single celled organism that possesses primitive intelligence and impressive computational skills, used as a model organism in many areas of research including robotics, structural design and biological computing. It also makes for a great creative collaborator: kept dark and damp and fed on a diet of porridge oats, it will grow in beautiful branching patterns whilst foraging for food.

Price: 500 SEK
