2) What is the vector?

Vectors are mathematical equations that describe anything having both direction and magnitude. They are usually drawn as pointed arrows, the length of which represents the vector’s magnitude. For example, wind has a vectorial quality because it blows in a certain direction at a certain speed.

Think of a football thrown by a quarterback downfield for a specific receiver to catch. It has both direction and magnitude depending on how hard it is thrown and the accuracy of the pass, but outside influences including interception from the opposing team, wind, the receiver’s skillset, etc. have an affect on its ability to arrive to its destination. In an equation representing this action, the direction of the vector arrow marks the ball’s direction and the length of the arrow, the speed at which it is travelling.

The only possible geometry that is in equilibrium in all vectorial directions (other than the sphere) is the cuboctahedron because the length of the radiating vectors and the edge vectors are equal. Tails From The Vector captures that moment in time, space and memory having the direction and magnitude to determine the best action to take to position yourself in relation to one point of space with another for a desirable outcome.
