Rhizome Fest

Identity and 3D animation for Rhizome, a speculative "festival for plants and only plants" that explores the agency of the non-human world through aesthetics.

Rhizome is a festival for plants — no non-plant beings allowed, especially humans — that explores the notion of ecological stakeholdership in the world’s complex and interrelated systems.

Inspired by the Deleuzio-Guattarian concept of the rhizome and the theory of vital materialism as developed by Jane Bennett, the festival is distributed and peer-to-peer (or plant-to-plant): it takes place in forests and other plant-inhabited environments all over the world.

The festival itself is a celebration of the more-than-human — the vital materialism and spirit of non-human life.
