This innovative project aims to build functional biomorphic computing devices operated by the slime mould Physarum polycephalum. We envisage that research and development centred on novel computing substrates, as self-assembled and fault-tolerant networks will lead to a revolution in the bio-electronics and computer industry. Combined with conventional electronic components in a hybrid chip, Physarum networks will radically improve the performance of digital and analog circuits.
As Artistic Researcher at the Bauhaus University in Weimar i’m in charge of the development of different tools and methodologies to create sonifications out of the physarum behavior. To follow the process please visit the project site.
