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.
