This drawing is a study from the collaboration with the Ordered Universe project (click here for more information on the project). It is in response to the medieval text De Differentiis Localibus by Bishop Robert Grosseteste (c.1170-1253), in which he describes the notion of our relationship to three dimensional space. Unlike the modern notion of the directions of space being front, back, left, right, up and down, Grosseteste describes a spherical space map where there is only the middle and the horizon (edge). So if one was in the middle of a sphere, every direction is 'up'.
This study is a comment on the move from a spherical space to a Cartesian perspective of space.
