This is a series of four workshops by Jasmin Märker especially programmed for the Science Festival exploring psychogeographic perspectives of Belfast through art & science experimentation.
As a workshop participant you will use slime moulds and wheat grass to create living maps, which you may take home to observe as they change and evolve. (Slime moulds are yellow unicellular organisms most known for remodelling the design of the Tokyo railway system in 26hours.)
Slime Dynamics III is an exhibition and series of four workshops by artist Jasmin Märker that explore what non-human ecological communities i.e. slime moulds, can teach us about contemporary urban dynamics. Slime moulds are yellow unicellular organisms famously known for replicating the Tokyo railway system in just 26 hours. During a workshop, participants will create living maps with these fascinating organisms and be able to them take home to observe as they evolve.
