Innesto Rizomatico (Rhizomatic Grafting) is a project developed for Sciame Project residency consisting of 9 digital drawings.
The rhizome is a modification of the plant’s stem mainly functioning as a water reserve. In the repertoire of Gilles Deleuze and Pierre-Félix Guattari the rhizome becomes an anti-tree, an anti-root, an anti-structure.
Having taken in consideration the issues of uninhabiting/losing habit, the research has tied up with the issues of physical and spatial change. The first embodied by the concept of prosthesis. The change of space refers to housing modules placed in states of emergency (container/prefabricated). Both represent a sort of shell for the individual, related to the phenomenology of the unexpected, since the use of the aforementioned support structures is activated by emergency parameters.
The drawings have been composed by extrapolating architectural elements from the vertical section of the housing modules, considering three focal points: foundation plinths (base), containment sheets (height), ridge hooks (top). The red lines projected on them configure a planimetry within a volume. Prostheses, like shells, testify the subtraction of presence.
The key is to become imperceptible, to sprout rhizomes and to not root.
