‘Slime Mould Logic’, the exhibition of sculptural installations that reference emergent, organic and ‘artificial’ computing process.

‘Slime Mould Logic’ is an exhibition of new work by the British artist David Cheeseman.
Slime mould is a generic name for organisms that superficially resemble fungi. They are able to navigate towards foods or hosts almost as if they have an emergent intelligence.

Cheeseman was struck by the fact that although the evolution of slime mould is a sophisticated process, it is also the result of basic behaviour emerging from simple processing systems; a binary intelligence that underpins biology and forms the essential algorithmic process of the computer.

Cheeseman incorporates multifaceted ideas into the processes of making the works and uses a wide range of materials that all have a very specific purpose, yet there is also a simple yes/no randomness in his decision making; this dual impulse underlies the production of the five sculptural installations featured in the show.

Gallery Director Teresa Grimes:

‘We are privileged to be showing this extraordinary body of work. The astonishing thing about  David’s practice is the way he approaches complex subjects and infuses them with a delicate magic and surprising beauty.’
