Physarum, an experimental animation designed to show off a slime mold simulation, based on a research paper by Jeff Jones.

What started as a redshift renderer test, quickly evolved into something much larger. Soon after implementing the paper in Houdini, I realized the simulation could be used to generate some pretty incredible designs. In this case the simulation is attempting find the most optimal paths through a given volume, creating tube like structures that are constantly evolving.

I can attach the project file if there's any interest!

If you are interested in reading the original paper, here’s a link to that: eprints.uwe.ac.uk/15260/1/artl.2010.16.2.pdf
