drawing with slime
I will grow slime on paper. When the desired pattern is complete, it will be dried and framed for display.
Slime grows with a certain pattern, but its shape is unpredictable.
I think this rhizomal pattern of slime has an aesthetic meaning.
Instead of paint and brush, I will draw with slime as a material.
Growing becomes Drawing.
And this drawing (d raw ing) is literally alive and constantly changing by itself.
Create an environment for slime to grow on paper.
Spread medium (2% agar in purified water) on the paper.
Place the slime and oats on the medium on the paper.
* Slime on Transparent paper
21. Nov. 2021 _ Transparent paper, slime, oat, purified water 2% agar. Store in plastic bag.
22. Nov. 2021 (+ 1 day)
23. Nov. 2021 (+ 2days)
As the agar syrup medium dried, the slime also dried and turned white. (but the traces of the slime that turned white are also beautiful. )
1. As the agar syrup medium dried, the slime also dried and turned white. Where is a best place to store the paper for the slime to grow healthy?
2. Under the right environment, slime will grow constantly. How do I stop the growth of slime when the desired pattern is reached (when I want to stop drawing)? to dry?
3. The paper is too thin and loses its shape from agarwater. Change to thick paper. But continue to work on transparent paper. Because it is more metaphoric and poetic.
slim on painted paper
23.Nov.2021_ paper, slime, oat, purified water 2% agar.
Store in plastic bag (black and blue), just in the shade without a plastic bag (yellow)
In the case of the yellow drawing left in the shade without sealing, the medium dried quickly and the slime did not grow much.
