Representation: Axonometric projection
The axonometric projection is a parallel projection, usually detaching the viewer from the scene and emphasizing the level of abstraction in the representation of the subject. Mostly employed for technical drawings, axonometrics can be as expressive as any other projection while keeping the ability of being highly descriptive. An axonometric image allows to place on the same level very different layers of informations on a space which is non-hierarchical and isotropic. The complexity of a scene is underlined while its contradictions are resolved by making them peacefully cohabit in the same frame.
