These acts of decoding through mapping are described by Gilles Deleuze’s and Félix Guattari’s writings on the Rhizome. As a new image of thought “that overturns the model and outlines a map.” Using the root system of the same name, they describe their theory and research as one that allows multiple non-hierarchical ideas; thus an Illustration of a system of thought through mapping and non-binary choice. This description of the Rhizomes is a perfect description of many systems we interact with today, and Deleuze and Guattari, before their time, were aware that these new systems can “give rise to despotic channels,” as artist Tom Sherman articulated perfectly: “hierarchical relationships do not have to be vertical in nature - they can, of course, be horizontal.”
