RADIX is a wooden root sculpture augmented by projection and sound. The sculpture is brought to life as a fictional entity: part organism, part apparatus.

In an ongoing play of light and sound the object undergoes a metamorphosis from its initial natural shape towards a technical formation while the two aspects strive for dominance. The project questions the relation between nature and technology and their connections and dependencies.
The project questions the relation between nature and technology and explores the dichotomy between organic structures and digital aesthetics. The combination of traditional biological elements and latest digital projection technology opens a completely new field of augmented sculptural objects. It creates a surreal appearance that blurs the boundaries between the real and the virtual.

Radix was produced by the interdisciplinary collective for audio-visual art Xenorama based in Potsdam, Germany. It was developed as an internal research project about the potential of organic surfaces, materials and shapes augmented with a digital layer of projected light, aesthetics and behaviors. Xenorama consist of a core team of five members that combine expertise in the fields of design, animation, programming, sound design and composition and specialize in immersive experiences, interactive installations and light projection shows. Their projects won several national and international awards, were exhibited worldwide and published on various websites, magazines and books.
