Exploring a Line

Along a line of latitude, the positions of the stars appear and move in the same way...


From the perspective of Te Upoko o te Ika a Maui, this is the precise latitude where the giant fish caught Maui's hook...

At this latitude, the sky becomes a common ground, shared by those who live on this line, separated only in time (348 metres per second, as the Earth spins)

41.31400° South

What would an urban environment be like, if it were thought about through a transect of constant latitude? Where moments of time were connected together, and considered as a whole?
