Through its borders the world is mapped out in a certain way that through its geography and design there are all these distinctions that are arisen: religious, spatial etc. These borders are represented in the cube but here as one shape those lines between borders begin to blur and mold into one another and it is ambiguous as to where it starts and where it ends. In this way the distinctions evaporate and it becomes one more cohesive whole but this depends on what angle you are viewing the shape. There is still a distinction between borders which is important to understand and respect. But within that whole there is a unifying structure that holds everything together. The tilted angle of the cube signifies an imbalance. This is to skew the perspective with the oblique and non vertical perspective creating a discomfort to distort the normalized viewing point of looking at the grid. And in that way it propagates questioning to what is the further meaning of this.
