The Creeping Garden explores the extraordinary world of the plasmodial slime mould and the diverse and bizarre research that it inspires.

Slime moulds are truly curious organisms: they are not plants, animals or fungi. But they share certain behaviours with members of all of these kingdoms.

As well as stunning original time-lapse footage of these overlooked organisms, filmed within its natural habitat and in a controlled laboratory setting, the film features interviews with artists, researchers and scientists to explore ideas of biological-inspired design, unconventional computing and scientific modeling.  It also includes the research into biocomputer music developed at Plymouth University’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research (ICCMR).

The Creeping Garden is a must if you want to catch a glimpse of the work behind Eduardo Reck Miranda’s composition Biocomputer Music, featured on Sunday’s Research Concert, which uses a biocomputer based on slime mould.
