Orbis Tertius

These works are pen and ink drawings of imaginary planets that I would like to do as a meditative exercise. I’m not entirely sure why I did them and there is no deeper meaning other then a flight of the imagination. As a child I would often create imaginary treasure maps of fictional islands and in some way this is merely a continuation of that. The title comes from the Jorge Louis Borges’ story “Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius” which is about fictional world of Tlön, whose inhabitants believe a form of subjective idealism, denying the reality of the world, and speak in a language lacking nouns.
