In this article two-dimensional space is structurally defined and differentiated so as to serve as an analog for modeling aspects of world events and processes. Six drawings consisting of three panels each were created and analyzed by the artist during the course of the study. The controlling factor was the rule-set, or syntax, by which each drawing was systematically developed. Areas of interpretation include the possibility of inherent knowledge, or animism, in a work of art; information-richness as a function of discrete high/low space usage decisions; expansion and/or contraction of worldview concepts through landscape structural understanding; and cross-modality links between space use and life processes. The appendix contains a mathematical analysis and theoretical variations of five of the drawings.
