The Spatial Calligraphy rotates in the artwork space, every aspect rotating in the same direction. But because of the special characteristics of Ultrasubjective Space, it can appear to be rotating clockwise or counterclockwise. 


Spatial Calligraphy is Japanese sho (calligraphy) drawn in space. The artwork reconstructs sho in three dimensional space to express the depth, speed and power of the brush stroke, and that sho is then flattened using the logical structure teamLab calls Ultrasubjective Space.
