  • (or "How Empty became Two")


    A circle sliced by a diagonal line. Empty set.

    Incoherent symbol assigned to this shape that, being so generous, decided to relinquish its round, perfect, unitary personality to be dual. Two tangent semicircles that rest in conquered balance.

    They lie assured that, no matter how many degrees the circle feels like rotating, they will always share the same baseline. The same ground.

    If by this we define Empty, poor Entire; shall work hard to provide even greater visual consistency.
