This project was commissioned by Eindhoven Engine for their new offices at the TU/e campus, and completed in collaboration with Serge Gruson.

Emphasizing the connecting role of Eindhoven Engine, Energized Rhizome presents a network of industrial-looking roots, with each culminating in an illuminated rod. These rods display a lightshow with a mesmerizing effect. Next to this, the rods are actuated. Every day the sculpture takes on a different position by extending or retracting its rods, surprising workers the next morning with a different composition.
