October 2015: Artist, researcher and educator Heather Barnett led a Slime Mould workshop for the More is Different elective where students (and tutors) experienced being a slime mould; learned about the remarkable computing abilities of the bacteria and created environments for their own pet slime mould to navigate.

This experimental design workshop helped students delve into emergent complex systems; encouraged students to think and explore rule-based emergent design tools as well as strategies for communicating systems within their practices.
