The Time of a Slime Mold

Leena Pukki

Short film

We see a luminous, colourful kaleidoscope of slime mould cultures. The emerging patterns of spreading cells are reminiscent of Karelian weaving and inspire Leena Pukki to reflect on temporality, traditions and the life stages of organisms. Once we hear the mysterious whispering of the words »Cells are family patterns«, then we also start to think about ourselves, our bodies, and human connections.
