Root: something embedded, fundamental, and very connected to the whole. The origin of something, also the foundation. Where one thing comes from. A current starting point and a connector to future becoming. What might be found in math, code, & trees? In us?
Like its predecessor Glyphs, the origins of this project began in language. I wanted to use the language already inherent in the fields of mathematics, computing, ecology, and linguistics to draw my way into some kind of shared space between the worlds & possibly uncover where they trickle into one another. Mapping a world of nature from the same symbols as what a digital world might build from, ie zeros & ones, and then turning a corner to find these new symbols morphing into mathematical trees or roots was a journey that brought forth these vibrant turbulent patterns full of movement & life.
