RHIZOME spreads as a carpet, having a less rhythmic program than other meshes. It follows the seeming disarray of natural systems.

Rhizome also acts as a map to connect areas of heightened activity, akin to the way that radial geometric figures of the Persian girih operate, which tend to harmonize with other self-same centres in their field.
