  • About The Rhizome Text

    “Rhizome” refers to a relationship like that of a tangle of roots, spreading underground with no set direction, no beginning and no end. They are dispersed and yet connected.

    The notion of a rhizome is opposed to the idea of a tree which has a starting point and branches out in a predictable path.

    Rhizome is a term used to describe the relations and connectivity of things. A hyper-connected structure that appears to be an emergent organisational form in complex systems.

    “Rhizome” referring to a relation like that of roots. They spread underground with no direction, no beginning, and no end. They are dispersed. It is opposed to the idea of a tree which has a starting point, and from there branches out in a predictable path.

    Book: A Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia
    Author: Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari
    Chapter: I- Rhizome

    Rhizome: A horizontal, underground plant stem capable of producing the shoot and root systems of a new plant. (source: www.britannica.com)

    Rhizome by Deleuze and Guttari is abstracted by relating it with multiple phenomenons. As per the book Rhizome is multiplicity connected to each other in vivid manner along the plane of consistency. A rhizome is something without a beginning or an end, without any sort of hierarchy, non-linear and with multiple entry and exit points. Rhizome is anti-arborescent model. An arborescent model is something which develops around central core or has central nucleus. Hence rhizome has no privileged center and has bigger dimensions than any arborescent model. This rhizome connect in bigger dimension and in multiple ways with different variety of elements to form assemblagesThese assemblages can be categorized into two main types (a) machinic assemblages: which deals with social and material flows (b) collective assemblages : which deals with sign or linguistic flows.

    Further Deleuze and Guttari give introduces principles of rhizomes in order to understand its specific characteristics

    1) Principle of connectivity: The rhizome can be connected at any point in any manner. It does not require a specific origin. its collective and continuous.

    2)Principle of heterogeneity: What is connected can completely be two different things. Any rhizome connects in heterogeneous manner. Further explained through example of wasp and orchid, where male wasp is attracted to orchid as central part looks like female wasp and hence engages itself in transference of pollen from one to other. similarly is the case with viruses, it carries genetic information and travel from host to host. hence wasp and orchid, viruses and its host connect to form a rhizome

    3)Principle of multiplicity: Any rhizome can be multiply connected in varied manner to form acentered, asubjective, interwoven network.

    4)Principle of asignifying rupture: A rhizome may be broken but will start up its own lines or new lines by interconnecting and multiplying in a heterogeneous manner. Hence a rhizome can never be destroyed. And it is not necessary that broken rhizome follows similar characteristic once connected to other from a ruptured end. For example a line of ant, if one tries to break the queue within few time it will again form new queue and not be necessary it is the same path as earlier, but will try to regenerate itself. Further explained through the concept of deterritorialization- Where newly designed multiplicity is re-coded with different set of functions rather than following what it was originally designed for. For example the computers were initially designed to perform arithmetic calculation but now its used in varied fields. Thus function of computer is deterritorialized and now reterritorialized for multiple function in varied fields. hence here the function of computers act as rhizome.

    5) and 6)Principle of cartography and decalcomania: A rhizome is more like a map, one can enter at any point an exit at any point, its never ending multiplicity. A map is never fixed but its constantly changing. Hence rhizome is map of complexities which can never be traced. As it does not have single point of origin which can be traced back, but a complex network with multiple entry and exit points.

    The book itself behaves as rhizome as any chapter can be read in any manner. It does not follow a specific format. Such model is interactive as well as intriguing. Such phenomenon can also be understood through various architectural movements. For example new movement of deconstructivism in architecture emerged through literary writings of french philosopher jacques derrida who emerged new branch of deconstructivism in literature from constructivist literature. Also Russian constructivist and futurist art movments inspired architects like Zaha Hadid and coop Himmelblau both in their graphics and geometrical forms.

    Rhizome- Deleuze | Guattari
    By MAUREENESTRELLA | Published: NOVEMBER 23, 2013
    Sandra Reeves http://www.moveintolife.com/thesis-pattern.html

    Rhizome is a philosophical term used to describe the relations and connectivity of things. The authors Deleuze and Guattari, have assigned this term “rhizome” referring to a relation like that of roots. They spread underground with no direction, no beginning, and no end. They are dispersed. It is opposed to the idea of a tree which has a starting point, and from there branches out in a predictable path.

    When compared to the relation between things, a rhizome forms assemblages. An assemblage is a gathering and grouping of things.
    D & G also talk about two planes of interaction. There is the plane of organization where things interact in a vertical form, with hierarchy and in a specific order where if one of its parts is missing, then the whole structure collapses. The second plane would be the plane of consistency. The rhizome takes action in this plane. It is a horizontal alliance with no specific direction where were all multiplicities that make part of it, interact with one another. Everything is connected in one way or the other, but in one plane.
    To better understand the concept of rhizomatic connections, D&G have approached 6 principles.
    The first principle, Connectivity, states that every part of the system is connected to another part in any possible way. Like in the real world, a person has a relation with another person who is connected to many more, hence creating a network.
    Heterogeneity, the second principle, defines that a rhizome is a connection between things of different nature. The authors give the example of orchids with bees. Both interact in the reproduction system of the other, but each one belongs to a completely different environment.
    The third principle is Multiplicity. As mentioned before, in a rhizome all the parts are connected to one another and then these to others, and these others to a greater number of others; as in a mathematical expression of n3. One is connected to three, these three to three other more and so on. It has no beginning or end.
    Asignifying Rupture is the fourth principle of rhizome. It states that a rhizome can never be broken. If one of its parts is interrupted, it will continue in a different path, or be deterritorialized (change its function) but will always remain.

    This concept brings up an idea of investigation. Relating to architecture and society, and similar to the concept of architecture and atmosphere, how do people react to a change of space? Whether it is changing or eliminating a part of their environment, or moving the people (deterritorialize), how do they embrace the change? Do they create their own atmospheres? Until what extent are they in control of this atmosphere? If society is a rhizome, then as suggested by the text, it will adapt to the change. We tend to believe it is an arborescent structure because of its organizational parameters, at the end, I believe every part of it has its own assemblage in a rhizomatic interaction.

    Going back to the text and understanding the idea of rhizome, the last set of principles is Cartography and Decalcomania. Rhizome is like a map. You can enter at any specific point but you cannot trace it because it has no end.

    In general, rhizome is defined as an interaction system applied to any division that follows no specific pattern or rules of organization.

  • The Rhizome

    from rhizomedigital.com.au/about-us/

    http://rhizomedigital.com.au/about-us/

    A rhizome is a stem that grows underground. Roots and shoots grow off the stem at intervals called nodes. In the 1970s philosophers Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari applied the idea of the rhizome to information and data. The result is a way of thinking about information movement, systems and interaction as being multiple and continuous.

    Knowledge as a rhizome is a non-hierarchical map of interconnections at various nodes and has no beginning or end.

  • directly from http://rhizomedigital.com.au/about-us/

    About:
    Rhizome Digital consultants bring fresh and innovative thinking to organisations. We understand that recordkeeping is not just about filing, but underpins all activities in an organisation. Good recordkeeping practices and systems support effective, discoverable and re-usable organisational knowledge.

    Leisa founded Rhizome Digital in 2010 to share her creative approach to recordkeeping to help support and grow community recordkeeping practices. Good recordkeeping is about people, practices and systems and in many organisations in the community services sector do not have the skills to apply these principles to most effect.

    Our speciality at Rhizome Digital is to think outside the box and work with existing systems, technologies and people to raise recordkeeping awareness and build knowledge capacity.

    Our goal is to always develop simple, adaptable and scalable solutions that people will use. This flexible and pragmatic approach helps organisations to look towards their future with more confidence and a greater skills base.

    Of course we also design and implement new systems when the need is there. Always keeping in mind the balance between people, practices and systems.

    The Rhizome

    A rhizome is a stem that grows underground. Roots and shoots grow off the stem at intervals called nodes. In the 1970s philosophers Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari applied the idea of the rhizome to information and data. The result is a way of thinking about information movement, systems and interaction as being multiple and continuous.

    Knowledge as a rhizome is a non-hierarchical map of interconnections at various nodes and has no beginning or end.

    At Rhizome Digital we apply the rhizome to our work by looking closely at existing and potential interconnections between people, practice and systems. We embrace ‘multiplicity’ and non-hierarchical thinking to develop creative and innovative organisational solutions.

    We deliver successful, sustainable and effective recordkeeping projects that recognise the complexity of the contemporary workplace and organisation.

    These ideas are expressed in the following mission statement:

    ”We support people to create, find, organise and preserve their knowledge assets and heritage.”

    Leisa’s vision for Rhizome Digital is to:

    Find new and innovative ways to support recordkeeping practice across the spectrum of organisational sectors.

    Communicate freely and widely the work we do so that others learn from our mistakes and triumphs.

    Preserve and share contributions to society by providing access to high quality advice, services and access to equipment.

    Work with archival and other heritage institutions to develop greater awareness and strategies to support a legacy for society.

    Advocate for the preservation of community identity and engage with stakeholders at all levels of activity, including policy makers and research institutions.

We understand that recordkeeping is not just about filing, but underpins all activities in an organisation. Good recordkeeping practices and systems support effective, discoverable and re-usable organisational knowledge.\n\nLeisa founded Rhizome Digital in 2010 to share her creative approach to recordkeeping to help support and grow community recordkeeping practices. Good recordkeeping is about people, practices and systems and in many organisations in the community services sector do not have the skills to apply these principles to most effect.\n\nOur speciality at Rhizome Digital is to think outside the box and work with existing systems, technologies and people to raise recordkeeping awareness and build knowledge capacity.\n\nOur goal is to always develop simple, adaptable and scalable solutions that people will use. This flexible and pragmatic approach helps organisations to look towards their future with more confidence and a greater skills base.\n\nOf course we also design and implement new systems when the need is there. Always keeping in mind the balance between people, practices and systems.\n\nThe Rhizome\n\nA rhizome is a stem that grows underground. Roots and shoots grow off the stem at intervals called nodes. In the 1970s philosophers Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari applied the idea of the rhizome to information and data. The result is a way of thinking about information movement, systems and interaction as being multiple and continuous.\n\nKnowledge as a rhizome is a non-hierarchical map of interconnections at various nodes and has no beginning or end.\n\nAt Rhizome Digital we apply the rhizome to our work by looking closely at existing and potential interconnections between people, practice and systems. We embrace ‘multiplicity’ and non-hierarchical thinking to develop creative and innovative organisational solutions.\n\nWe deliver successful, sustainable and effective recordkeeping projects that recognise the complexity of the contemporary workplace and organisation.\n\nThese ideas are expressed in the following mission statement:\n\n ”We support people to create, find, organise and preserve their knowledge assets and heritage.”\n\n \n\nLeisa’s vision for Rhizome Digital is to:\n\nFind new and innovative ways to support recordkeeping practice across the spectrum of organisational sectors.\n\nCommunicate freely and widely the work we do so that others learn from our mistakes and triumphs. \n\nPreserve and share contributions to society by providing access to high quality advice, services and access to equipment.\n\nWork with archival and other heritage institutions to develop greater awareness and strategies to support a legacy for society.\n\nAdvocate for the preservation of community identity and engage with stakeholders at all levels of activity, including policy makers and research institutions."},{"_id":"3eaa1d536a988c13fb00003d","treeId":"5302c7cd120917d3480015ea","seq":1,"position":2,"parentId":"3eaa150f6a988c13fb00003b","content":"#### Reference Collection: Emergent Structure\n- in complex systems \n- ubiquity\n\n"},{"_id":"3e1d87425d1a2d5bc50000d2","treeId":"5302c7cd120917d3480015ea","seq":1,"position":4,"parentId":"5302c7cd120917d3480015eb","content":"## Services\n\n* App Dev\n* Web Dev\n* Technical Support / Consulting"},{"_id":"3e1d8d8c5d1a2d5bc50000d3","treeId":"5302c7cd120917d3480015ea","seq":1,"position":1,"parentId":"3e1d87425d1a2d5bc50000d2","content":"### App Development\n\n"},{"_id":"3e1d8e365d1a2d5bc50000d4","treeId":"5302c7cd120917d3480015ea","seq":1,"position":2,"parentId":"3e1d87425d1a2d5bc50000d2","content":"### Web Development"},{"_id":"3e1d8eac5d1a2d5bc50000d6","treeId":"5302c7cd120917d3480015ea","seq":1,"position":3,"parentId":"3e1d87425d1a2d5bc50000d2","content":"### Technical Support / Consulting\n"},{"_id":"3e305dcc5a6fc765cb000015","treeId":"5302c7cd120917d3480015ea","seq":1,"position":4.5,"parentId":"5302c7cd120917d3480015eb","content":"## Portfolio\n\n* Thumbnails with links to websites"},{"_id":"3e305b435a6fc765cb000014","treeId":"5302c7cd120917d3480015ea","seq":1,"position":5,"parentId":"5302c7cd120917d3480015eb","content":"## Projects\n\n* Open Teach\n* Digital Rhizome Public Information Infrastructure\n* ZomeWorks"},{"_id":"3eaa2afe6a988c13fb000040","treeId":"5302c7cd120917d3480015ea","seq":1,"position":6,"parentId":"5302c7cd120917d3480015eb","content":"## Contact Us\n\n- text blurb .. \nFeel free to email us if you require any more information on the services and tools we can help you with, if you think your project might be something we need to hear about, or to just say hello.\n\ninfo@digitalrhizome.net\n\n- Twitter\n- Google\n- Facebook\n- GitHub\n\n- Map function"},{"_id":"3eaa064d6a988c13fb000039","treeId":"5302c7cd120917d3480015ea","seq":1,"position":2,"parentId":null,"content":"# DigitalRhizome Internal Web\n\n- Wiki\n- Community \n- Fileshare ...\n- Apps"},{"_id":"3eaa20606a988c13fb00003e","treeId":"5302c7cd120917d3480015ea","seq":1,"position":1,"parentId":"3eaa064d6a988c13fb000039","content":"## Wiki\n\nChoose between: \n- DocuWiki\n- MediaWiki"},{"_id":"3eab13506a988c13fb00006e","treeId":"5302c7cd120917d3480015ea","seq":1,"position":2,"parentId":"3eaa064d6a988c13fb000039","content":"## Other Apps \n\n???"}],"tree":{"_id":"5302c7cd120917d3480015ea","name":"Digital Rhizome","publicUrl":"digital-rhizome"}}
