The art works are the outcomes of scientific experiments that aimed to design computing devices made from slime mould. Slime mould Physarum polycephalum is a single-cell organism visible by the unaided eye. The slime mould computes by optimising its shape, electrical activity or location in response to stimulations. This fascinating mix of art and science offers an awe-inspiring look at the ways in which slime mould explores its environment and performs computation. Art works allow us to see the world through the "eyes" of the slime mould and show that the absence of a brain does not exclude an amorphous living creature from intelligence.
