We will be hosting the Living Language Project workshop by Ori ELISAR, an Israeli graphic designer who also came to hang out and host a workshop at the BioClub in 2016.
In the workshop, a type of slime mold called Physarum polycephalum is used to make living letters.
This time, Ori's "The Living Language Project" received the most outstanding award in the art division for the 20th Japan Media Arts Festival, and will be held at the BioClub as a related workshop.
