A locus is a place-finding sculpture. Its
pointers indicate relative position and distance for selected places on
Pointers emanate from a sphere.
The sphere is held up
by a pole.
The length of each locus pointer is based on the
height of the pole and relates to the distance to the indicated place.
The pole itself is a pointer. It indicates both its
own location and the location directly on the other side of the planet.
Inscriptions on the pointers show the
place and it's through-the-earth distance.
on the ground assist visualization.
An imaginary line might be perceived to run
from the pointer, through the air, into the location disk,
then on through the Earth, eventually passing through the place
indicated on the pointer.
Locus sculptures differ with each
geographical placement. Sculptural styles can also differ. The
locus can blend science and art.
A network of these objects can be built.
Locus is for contemplation
The world is round.
