The Physarum Experiments

March 21st 2015, 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Part of the Flatpack Film Festival

“[In] trying to understand systems that use relatively simple components to build higher-level intelligence, the slime mould may someday be seen as the equivalent of the finches and tortoises that Darwin observed on the Galápagos Islands”
— Steven Johnson, Emergence, 2001

You’ve seen the movie – now here’s a chance to meet the stars up close. Join artist Heather Barnett to discover the fascinating role the slime mould plays in the cultures of science and art, and participate in a practical experiment to test the abilities of this single-celled organism.

Places are limited. This workshop is free to Creeping Garden ticket-holders. Please see the Creeping Garden event for more information and to book.
