Rhizomes

Abstract:
A collective and ephemeral work on Internet. “A rhizome does not begin or end, it is always in the middle, between things, interbeing, intermezzo. The tree is lineage, but rhizome is alliance, only alliance. The tree imposes the verb ‘to be’ but the rhizome’s fabric is the conjunction ‘and. and. and.’.” Gilles Deleuze & Félix Guattari, Rhizome in Mille plateaux.
