Slime Tech Lab Workshop!
STL is a mobile laboratory and living system that explores new futures through science, technology, and storytelling. It is led by Afrofuturist artist Ayodamola Tanimowo Okunseinde and technology and art educator Ashley Jane Lewis. Participants will be invited to consider slime mold as an inspiration to envision vibrant, diverse futures through speculative design and microbiology. Using an accessible 3D platform, participants will develop ideas and objects for the cooperative slime mold-influenced future as part of their artwork, Sowers.
