title Biological Computation of Physarum - From DLA to spatial adaptive Voronoi
source Kepczynska-Walczak, A, Bialkowski, S (eds.), Computing for a better tomorrow - Proceedings of the 36th eCAADe Conference - Volume 2, Lodz University of Technology, Lodz, Poland, 19-21 September 2018, pp. 531-536
summary Physarum polycephalum, also called slime mold or myxamoeba, has started attracting the attention of those architects, urban designers, and scholars, who work in experimental trans- and flexi-disciplines between architecture, computer sciences, biology, art, cognitive sciences or soft matter; disciplines that build on cybernetic principles. Slime mold is regarded as a bio-computer with intelligence embedded in its physical mechanisms. In its plasmodium stage, the single cell organism shows geometric, morphological and cognitive principles potentially relevant for future complexity in human-machines-networks (HMN) in architecture and urban design. The parametric bio-blob presents itself as a geometrically regulated graph structure-morphologically adaptive, logistically smart. It indicates cognitive goal-driven navigation and the ability to externally memorize (like ants). Physarum communicates with its environment. The paper introduces physarum polycephalum in the context of 'digital architecture' as a biological computer for self-organizing 2D- to 4D-geometry generation.
