Rhizomatiks 10

dates:April 19-30.2017
Venue:Spiral Garden

This exhibition is the first mid-career retrospective by Rhizomatiks which has consistently been exploring diverse cutting edge styles of expression with skilled engineers and highly original content varying from media arts and maker's R&D support to entertainment and advertisements. “Rhizomatiks” named after “Rhizome”, the concept of continuously multiplying horizontally, has gained worldwide publicity as a collective uniquely capable of dealing with everything from software to hardware and is highly demanded today. Last year in celebration of 10th anniversary, three departments were established: “Research” pursuing a new experimental expression based on R&D, “Design” focusing on problem solving, and “Architecture” re-examining the role of spaces. This helped us undertake more professional projects and this event will look back at our last 10 years of accomplishments and predict what will occur in the next 10 years.

Established in 2006. An organization that combines high technical ability and power of expression to cover a wide range of media from web to spatial interactive design. In addition to artists, specialists in a wide range of fields such as hardware / software engineers, designers and planners are affiliated, using knowledge and technical / planning capabilities cultivated through media art to develop various fields such as entertainment and advertisement. Engaging full stack from planning to production, it is one of the few productions whose name is known abroad. The company has a rich history of awards, from Ars Electronica, Media Arts Festival Agency for Cultural Affairs, to Cannes Lions International Creative Festival and many more.
Rhizomatiks Research is our division dedicated to exploring new possibilities in the realms of technical and artistic expression. Focusing on media art, data art, and other RD-intensive projects, our team strives to deliver cutting edge solutions that have not yet been seen on a global stage. Rhizomatiks Research is accountable for all steps of a project, from hardware/software development up through operation. Additionally, we study the relationship between people and technology, and collaborate on projects with a myriad of creators.

Rhizomatiks Design is our division dedicated to informed and rational problem solving.
We work together with clients to identify pertinent issues, then use technology-assisted design to produce results.
We support clients with a wide range of product development, advertising/promotion, and event phrasing services from start to finish (planning/implementation/evaluation), and even advise on future brand/advertisement planning.

Rhizomatiks Architecture is our division dedicated to re-envisioning how people think of approach space.
By augmenting the experience of digital-technology-driven creative to the larger world of space and city, we create nonfinite buildings in a state of constant flux and evolution.
Our seamless journey through initial survey, design, content development, and event management transcends the barrier of hardware/software.
This process traverses the experience of place to arrive in the phenomenological realm, creating all the action in site, both physical and virtual.
