The other drawing

zero-gravity

Took a break from the TS-ing in order to start a new drawing, this time the antithesis to the one-point master-architect endless-arrays-of-tables organisation. I decided to not be afraid to apply my gravity research quite literally to the discussion on the office as rallying context. Hence, this drawing is of an office caught in the perpetual free-fall, which satellites find themselves in. I’m imagining this to be a no-point perspective, where everything is just floating around in zero gravity (which is essentially, according to general relativity, the same as free-fall in a vacuum).

What you’re seeing so far is the models (square, of course) on the tables being arranged as one wishes in the absence of gravity, as well as a couple of t-squares thrown in for good measure. Will begin to draw the floating tables and computers tonight.

Everyone wants to be a starchitect these days. The only problem is that the star will implode, when subject to too much of its own egocentric gravity field.

    I would like to insert myself in the drawing while waving my hands in the air in slow motion. LIKE!

    Great last paragraph.

    is there actually a place in the cosmos with no perspective? the black hole?

    @Anny and Natasha – Thank you!

    @Sasha – If you could, theoretically, still be alive at the bottom of a black hole, “we would be able to see the whole universe in one small patch of our sky – even the stuff that is actually behind the singularity. Also time outside would appear to be running much faster, so we would be able to see the evolution of the universe “flash” before our eyes.”

    This is one of these things where the more you learn of it, the weirder it gets.
