Team: Stephen x Zimmerer (Project Director) with rhizomedas xxx
Rhizomedas xxx is a design collective that weaves together architecture, technology, and ecology to author stories about queerness and kinship. Named for Deleuze and Guattari’s theory of the rhizome, xxx represents three crosshairs in space, the smallest number needed to triangulate a position. In its season 1 collection, rhizomedas xxx muses on separation in the form of four imagined garden installations, each 10 x 20 meters. The collection of four speculative garden installations is presented as four acts, capable of being read or visited in any order. Each act muses on a different physical instance of separation, including surveillance, segregation, quarantine, and sterility. Each garden is participatory, speculating how interaction -- be it spatially kinetic, edible, audible, or digital -- might spark transformative togetherness with human actors, with landscapes, and with the planet.
