INTERSTICES

FRAGMENTS OF DIFFERENT SPATIAL ORDERS

Rhizome - Silvano Busotti

“A rhizome has no beginning or end; it is always in the middle, between things, interbeing, intermezzo.” (Deleuze, Guattari)

‘Third landscape’ refers to a spatiality composed of “undecided spaces, without function, which are uneasy to name”, that are situated “at the margins”. Clement visualizes them as residues, deriving from “the abandon of an activity”.

“Observe the scrap and residual territories and their functioning. Observe the behaviors that take place in these spaces, the beings that find citizenship there. In the observation of the ‘Third landscape’, namely the reverse of the organised world, hints for an appropriate, original and slightly subversive criticism of certain planning techniques lie.” (De Pieri in Clement)

Rhizome - Toma´sˇ Herben

[Rhizome – Toma´sˇ Herben]

Rhizome is an “a-centered, non-hierarchical, non-signifying system without a General and without an organising memory or central automaton, defined solely by a circulation of states” (Deleuze, Guattari)

What unites residues, as undecided fragments, and rhizomes, as connected, heterogeneous, multiple segments, into the notion of Interstices, is their threshold capacity to refuge differences and to create non-hierarchical, a-centered spaces of encounter in-between other things. They constitute “fragments of different possible spatial orders” (Cenzatti)
