DESCRIPTION

The slime mould is all but unknown to most people. And yet small groups of scientists, artists, musicians and visionaries have begun to find within the intriguing behavioural patterns of this peculiar life form extraordinary metaphors that seem to belong to the world of science fiction, inspiring practical applications such as powerful computing devices, transport network designs and robot controllers.

Jasper Sharp, co-director of The Creeping Garden (with Tim Grabham), discusses his film and book exploring the work of fringe scientists, mycologists and artists, and their relationship with these extraordinary plasmodial organisms.
