I am currently attempting to culture physarum polycephalum directly onto 3D printed surfaces without the application of agar. I have had luck previously creating cultures on agar coated surfaces, but I can achieve a higher resolution without the coat and have spoken with researchers who have claimed to accomplish this.
Environment: enclosure is kept at 70% humidity, 72 degrees, and contains a HEPA air filter for circulation and decontamination. Light is low, it's in a basement…Continue
I work with somatic research in a poetic way and have found slime mould's properties to be a source of inspiration in this practice. I did a residency in Japan where mould is plentiful due to the humid and warm climate. The moulds and fungi became my collaborators and so I'm wishing to continue this collaboration with the non-human.
I've seen slime in 2015, but just now realize how I want to collaborate with it!. I'm a new media artist and been working with magnetic fluids and starch and what not to generate forms through the use of circuits, magnets, vibes and human interactions. I can't wait to use the slime to do just that but on cloth... I hope Ian, you can send some my mail, since I can't get it here in Israel. I'll be posting my experiments once we and the little yellow fellows finally meet.

I want to know more about the Physarum polycephalum. But I can't find anything about them on the Internet.
Is there anybody who know more about the Physarum polycephalum? Please share the website relate with it for me.
Hello ! I finished my experiments with Physarum polycephalum, and I share the results in a blog : http://blob.ytterbium.eu/ , if you want to see my group's work for 6 monthes. We made videos and photos, but the blog is in french...
