We are becoming more and more aware that the structure of our reality is based on multiple, dynamic, interactive networks of constantly processed data: from neural networks to the World Wide Web; from the natural circulatory systems to social, economic and cultural phenomena. Various layers of the reality are interconnected with each other. Understanding of the world as a multi-faceted environment gave rise to the concept of an interface of a unique form that would serve as an introduction into the world of creativity, artistic research and practice, scientific discovery and technological progress. In presents both biological and digital characteristics, linking the physical and technological realities together. The interface has a nonhierarchical structure. In its form it refers to the root networks, while in its idea – to the Wood Wide Web concept of the underground world of connections and mutual exchange.
