Rhizome by Boris Labbé, a film director and visual artist based in Madrid, is a complex animated film. Approximately 2,300 original Indian ink and watercolour drawings were needed to create the work. The artist blended these together using complementary techniques such as the software After Effects to produce a post-digital painting-like visual poem. Rhizome invites the viewer to get lost in a microscopicly small world that is in constant change, permanently redistributing itself in a mind-blowing metaphor of evolution, urbanization, migration, and the mutation of societies. Highly elaborate aesthetic research mixes with complex hand-drawn animation and computer crowd-simulation to build a multi-layered but very coherent universe. The musical composition created by Brazilian composer Aurélio Edler-Copes, forms a haunting rhythmic base, acute and repetitive which articulates the word “Rhizome” in Morse code.
