The project consists of one layer where the specimen is going to grow from different points and describe different patrons while it moves toward the food that will be specifically situated in different points of each of the acrylic surfaces of the installation. Through this movement, the specimen leave a white almost invisible patron that can be seen over a black surface, this patron will create a contrast with the living specimen of white color that will be moving across the surface.

PROJECT IDEA 1

The idea is to compare how the specimen Physarum Polycephalum grows in normal conditions, and how trained specimens behave when they have the possibility to change of salinity environment.

A neutral medium was created, and a photo sequence video was created to see how the specimen grows in normal conditions, and another medium was created with stripes of different salinity mediums from 0% to .5% to see how the trained specimens behave. The following two videos show both experiments.


The initial experiment of teaching Physarum Polycephalum to live in salinity mediums was made in the class GMUGestaltung medialer Umgebungen:Experimental Microbiology, the experiment and results can be seen in the following link: [1]

RELATED EXPERIMENTS

First approximation to the organism

Three different kinds of samples were made the same day, with the same conditions and the same medium, but they develop in different ways, as it can be seen in the links of each experiment below. From this three experiments, I learned how to cultivate physarum/polycephalum how it grows, the type of conditions that it needs (medium) to grow up and the temperature that it also needs to grow.

/Farming 1 Farming from a living sample

/Farming 2 Farming from a sleeping sample

/Farming 3 Farming from a combined sample


Medium experimentation base in the previous investigation of Caicedo

/20.11.2018 Growing Polycephalum/physarum from Caicedos investigation


Project idea 2

The first approximation is to recreated and find a method in order to cultivate a microorganism with a coral shape.

The project idea is to experiment with the kombucha isolation method made before, in order to duplicate the results obtained with the coral shaped organism so I can replicate and create a method to extract/isolate this specific organism.
