Video: RhiZone: [ PapiLLa ]
Soundscape: Andre Bartetzki, Programmer: Arkadiusz Rataj RhiZone: [ PapiLLa ] was inspired by natural symbiotic systems of the rhizosphere and Wood Wide Web. It questions how our identity will change when the Internet of Things turns into the Internet of Minds, in the world where organic and inorganic systems will merge into a new hybrid form of data processing. RhiZone: [ PapiLLa ] is an imaginative organ of a new cyber symbiosis. The title refers to biological nodular formations associated with senses of touch, taste or smell, and to root organs of symbiosis between plants and bacteria. Let’s imagine our world as a rhizosphere, the big network of small worlds, based on diversity, symbiosis and interdependence. Our smallest actions, and even thoughts, affect its well-being.
