This is a study of a study of incommensurables, with a view of Mount Meru, the golden mountain at the center of the universe. In the foreground are two spectral figures seated opposing each other, an Aristotelian “square of opposition”, à la Russell and Wittgenstein. The glass cube Map Room is an allusion to Francis Bacon by way of David Lynch.
