Rhizome House

In botany, a rhizome is an underground root that branches from nodes both above and below-ground, creating a huge structure. Rhizome House is a life-size representation of this root system.

This interdisciplinary artwork encourages you to closer examine the structure and let yourself be overwhelmed by the teeming roots. The light in the installation changes in colour: from cool blues to bright pinks, encouraging you to explore more. All in all, Rhizome House provokes an alienating experience that makes you think about how everything in our environment is connected.
