CS(S) Monk > Positioning and Meaning

Positioning and Meaning

The dominant monk image of CS(S) Monk occupies the strongest focal point on the page, the top-left corner. The first element of this design is the most important to the piece, and also in the most important spot.

If you consider a flat, fixed-size canvas like a piece of paper, halving it both horizontally and vertically creates four quadrants. The sentences of Western languages run from left to right across a page, and top to bottom down the page. The average viewer has learned to unconsciously regard each quadrant with a different importance because of this.
