Emma Ribbing Slime Mold Experience
exhibition space: www.in-discourse.com
In collaboration with Heather Barnett, University professor of visual art (bio & eco−art) at St Martin College of Art, UK, Emma Ribbing creates a choreography based on the communication network of unicellular organisms − slime mold. These organisms behavioural patterns serve as basis for a choreographic simulation where communication functions and where it doesn’t. Where an individual can exist and where it disappears within their group.
Slime Mold Experience is a dance and science experience with strong symbolism of a sustainable communication system and its strengths and weaknesses. The resuIts of this experience will propose dance as a research tool for further analyses and discussions. The project wiII invite dancers, architects and city planners to be part of its laboratories and on−site experiments.
Slime Mold Experience is not a photo exhibition but an open a research process that provides a look into the laboratory and its techniques.
