Researchers analyse the human brain to learn how intelligence can be programed. But what can we learn from organic substances and bio intelligence? Slime Mold is a growing organism with a spatial intelligence. In a DIY biolab the intersections between art, biology and technology has been investigated. Visitors interacted – digitally and analogue – with growing organisms from mycomyxetae to fungi.

As part of hub.berlin 2017, Retune presented the work of 10 Berlin based artists in a Digital Arts Lab. Highlighting art as an ongoing process and as a result of a human-technological collaboration: In a constant dialogue between trial and error, revision, improvisation, rejection and remaking.

The Lab consisted of a process-exhibition, workshop sessions and talks. It offered a peek into the creative process and its approaches.
