The second PhD year has begun with an interest in the ecological articulation of systems within nature and the communication within them. I find a parallel between the rhizomatic assembly as seen in Deleuze and Guattari and how I begin to define what communication design is; an interdependent discipline, crossing many fields, and in constant transformation: "always in the middle, between things, interbeing, intermezzo." This is an idea I am further developing within the research.
