Ars Electronica: Physarum Polycephalum
I am very proud to show a new project at this year’s Ars Electronica in Linz. Bodymetries / “Physarum Polycephalum” is a collaborative work with Theresa Schubert and Moritz Dreßler.
The installation by Theresa Schubert (DE), Moritz Dreßler (DE) and Michael Markert (DE) invites those who behold it to interact with a computer simulation that assigns configurations of human moles to the protoplasmic tissue of an acellular slime mold (Physarum polycephalum) and thus applies an alternative method of decentralized cell organization to the human body.
Here’s the important stuff until I find some time to post some nice images:
· Ars Electronica Festival: http://www.aec.at/festival
