Letters of the Alphabet: XYZ for X, Y, Z Axis

 

A set of X, Y, and Z axes make up a Cartesian Coordinate System in 3-dimensional space. The x-axis and y-axis represent the first two dimensions; the z-axis, represents the third dimension. Inspired by the Japanese word “Zutto” meaning “forever,” the objects will be arranged to form a 3D representation of an infinity symbol. Although there are several speculations as to how the infinity symbol was created, it is said that John Wallis, creator of the symbol, derived it from the letter Omega, the last letter in the Greek alphabet.
