Photographic essay Rhizome Photographic essay based on the Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari Rhizome: “Subtract the unique from the multiplicity to be constituted; write at n-1 dimensions. A system of this kind could be called rhizome ” (A Thousand Plateaus, 13).

“Unlike trees or their roots, the rhizome connects any point to any other point and its traits are not necessarily linked to traits of the same nature. It brings into play very different regimes of sign, and even nonsign states. The rhizome is reducible neither to the One nor to the multiple. ...It is composed not of units, or rather directions in motion. It has neither a beginning nor end, but always a middle (milieu) from which it grows and which it overspills. It constitutes linear multiplicities... ” (A Thousand Plateaus, 23).
