The equatorial line highlights the division of the world into twohemispheres. It also represents a political division of the world in thenorth and south. What if these divisions did not exist? How could theworld be understood if there was no difference between the southernand northern worlds? If the world were represented having only onehemisphere, how would it affect our geopolitical perception? In Gravity on the Equatorial Line, all the orthogonal lines orient theEarth’s geographical representation disappears. Then another system isestablished based on an imaginary gravity physically influencing theterritories. In that other system, frontiers, names of continents, andcountries or oceans become irrelevant. If the equatorial line could alterthe Earth’s physical order, interfering in the very gravity and changingthe order of things, it would define a particular vision of the world.
