  Subtle Technologies: Workshop - The Physarum Experiments

Heather Barnett, who a few days earlier introduced us to Broad Vision - an interdisciplinary programme being conducted at the University of Westminster, began the workshop by giving a background to her art practice involving slime moulds (physarum polycephalum) where she elicits growth patterns using food and obstacles to produce fascinating visual outputs.

This fun and practical workshop allowed participants to create our own conditions to manipulate growth patterns in slime moulds.  

Instruction manual and information for  growing our own "pet slime mould".

Taking a cut of the agar slab, Laura sets up an environment for her mould surrounded with lots of oats and water.

Instead Howard opted for a more challenging route for his slime mould.
