Being Slime Mould is an interactive installation and participatory performance exploring the design function and cooperative behaviour of the organism, Physarum polycephalum (a true slime mould).

Through the observation, simulation and enactment of slime mould behaviour, Being Slime Mould aimed to engage viewers directly with the naturally occurring phenomena of this intelligent organism, which possesses the ability to solve problems, make complex decisions and form efficient networks.

Being Slime Mould was exhibited at BioDesign: on the Cross Pollination of Nature, Science and Creativity.
