Film made by Mellissa Monsoon, showing Physarum Polycephalum (slime mould) growth on agar sculptures. Questioning our connection with nature, do we beat as one like the many-headed slime to succeed or are we using resources until there is nothing left for ourselves? 

Mellissa became interested in slime mould when given some by artist Heather Barnett, who works with natural phenomena, complex systems and biological design. Mellissa has been studying the growth of slime mould over 3D structures of agar, exploring the vulnerability of nature and the vulnerability of the world.
