  • Rhizomes are roots that are similar to leaves and grow horizontally underground. It’s a root-system looking like a plant, underneath.
  • Rhizomes are a cultural concept. Their interconnection makes them resist to the vertical reading of causality. It’s all shared influence, without a start or an end.
  • Rizome is also a fictional multinational corporation in the novel “Islands in the Net” by Bruce Sterling (That I strongly recommend).

Here are a few of my pictures assembled into a photo album (not updated recently):
