“A Globe (according to the Mathematical Definition) is a perfect and exact round Body, contained under one Surface. Of this Form (as hath been proved) consists the Heavens and the Earth: And therefore the Ancients with much Pains, Study and Industry, endeavouring to imitate as well the imaginary as the real appearances of
them both, have Invented two Globes: the one to represent the Heavens, with all the Constellations…”*
The earth is a finely balanced entity. Its elements compliment and contrast, maintaining equilibrium.
Volume I represents an alternate state: the solidity of the sphere marked and punctured by the physical imprint of an imbalanced force. What is seemingly solid and eternal is in reality permeable and fragile. It reflects another world that could be our own.
* Joseph Moxon, ‘A tutor to astronomie and geographie, or, An easie and speedy way to know the use of both the globes’, 1659,
