This is the last workshop of the BioArt Bootcamp!
Workshop 6 • Sunday, November 22nd 12 PM to 3 PM
During this workshop, Tosca Terán introduces the potential of slime mould for collaboration at the intersection of art and science. Participants learn how to set-up their kitchen/studio into safe, mini-Physarum Biolabs towards raising Physarum polycephalum.
The workshop invites participants to experiment with different biological media and feeding substrates, reflecting on how they inform the growth and morphology of protozoans and protists. Discussions around working with Physarum towards mapping areas (your daily bike route, for instance) to slime circuitry, artists working with Physarum.
*Physarum polycephalum is a yellow ameboid dweller of decaying logs and decomposing vegetation on dim forest floors. It made headlines when Japanese biologists demonstrated its uncanny ability to optimize paths through mazes and reproduce tracks between mapped Tokyo railway stations. Since then, slime mould has become an attractive living substrate for research in diverse areas such as mathematical modelling, computation and bio-art.
* Kits for some of the workshops can be made available for an extra fee, however, please note that some items cannot travel via post out of province, or be sent to various countries. Kits that can be purchased in advance:
• bio-sonification module- register for this workshop receive 15% off, shipping extra.
• Mycelium kit- substrate inoculated with fungi (generally, cannot ship out of country)
• Physarum kit- agar plates, one with Physarum as well as a small amount of food. (cannot ship out of country)
• BioPigment- agar plates with 2 different biopigments, 1 plain agar plate. (cannot ship out of country)
Thank you in advance for your support of this workshop series. Please note that due to the large undertaking putting these workshops together we will not be able to offer refunds. Thank you for your understanding.
