PLASTIC RHIZOME is a collaborative experimental project begun to explore the potential of public and applied scholarship. It is part critical aggregator, part magazine, and part clearing house for experimental thought and cultural criticism. The intent is to foster a point of view that spans cultural anthropology, the arts, speculative anthropology, ethnography of the possible, and engagement with contemporary culture to develop a critical lens for understanding the chaos of the world around us all. Founded in part on the idea that nothing worth doing exists by itself, the goal of the project is to trace the interconnectedness of the phenomena in our lives.
This project is still in its early stages. Check back often to see what we're up to.
