a rhizome (/ˈraɪzoʊm/, from Ancient Greek: rhízōma "mass of roots", from rhizóō "cause to strike root")

A rhizome is characterized by ‘ceaselessly established connections between semiotic chains, organizations of power, and circumstances relative to the arts, sciences, and social struggles.’ Rather than narrativize history and culture, the rhizome presents history and culture as a map or wide array of attractions and influences with no specific origin or genesis, for a rhizome has no beginning or end; it is always in the middle, between things, interbeing, intermezzo. Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari

to design: from Latin designare "mark out, devise, choose, designate, appoint," from de- "out" (see de-) + signare "to mark"

Together we mark out a wide array of connected concepts, ideas and experiences that challenge our presumptions of how things should work and explore new ways of how they can work our understanding of "Rhizomatic" + "Design"
