Slime mold

 

An agent based feedback loop system that simulates the behavior of Physarum polycephalum (slime mold) and the natural process of network optimization. Implementation based on this paper.

At later iteration it is also combined with additional forces and a video feed to affect its growth and behavior.

Rendered in realtime (300k partilces @60fps) using GLSL compute shaders within Touch Designer.

Proof of Work

 

 

Running time: 2’43

 

Mouse movement recorded over five typical working days in a Visual Effects Studio. The sped up visualization of the mouse trajectory is in sync with the sonification of the same data, by re-purposing the X and Y coordinates as Left and Right audio signals.

Captured at two HD monitors, using a digitizer tablet, at 30fps and reproduced 1470 times faster to match high quality 44.1Khz audio.

15x15cm laser cut, wooden panel, acrylics

The two painted panels are scanned and brought into the computer. The same 90 particles fall and collide with the bright brushstrokes of each painting, creating the two variations. The particle trails are laser etched on the original painting.
