Inspiration for this project

When I’m designing the concept for a new project based on biological organisms like slime molds, fungi, or lichen, I begin by researching ideas, photographing specimens in the field with a macro lens, or browsing images online. That was absolutely the case here. I referenced photographs I had taken earlier, and some of my favorite slime mold photographers on Instagram.
