Physarum is capable of solving mazes and jumping border walls.

I find a profound meaning in the idea of microscopic organisms jumping border walls to assure survival .

The contemplation of Physarum‘s self-awareness during this project, built compassion between this species and my own.

In current times of global uncertainty for all ethnical minorities, this project aims to bring a hopeful vision of migratory resilience.
