Model for Plot Twist (Coriolis), 2018, 5"h, 18"w, 24"d

Departing from the subject of "fictitious forces", forces we perceive due to a shifting frame of reference, I use geometric forms to illustrate the instability of limited perception. Triangles, the sturdiest shape, interplay with spheres, which are neutral at rest but highly susceptible to influence. The 12 spherical drawings diagram the Coriolis force, a fictitious force which deflects the motion of objects as they move against the backdrop of a steadily rotating sphere. On a sphere such as our planet, the perception of linearity is abstract and twisted. Any plot can be expected to turn in the current of a spun sphere of influence.
