Location in Space

And, on the topic of sexy soulful female British singers, here's my attempt at a cultural triangulation of Amy Winehouse:

Lauren Hill : Cypress Hill : The Chantels

Triangulation is a technique used to locate the position of a point in space so cultural triangulation would be the cultural equivalent. Art and music critics sometimes use it or the it's two point equivalent which I would call artistic addition. For example, you might say that The Scissor Sisters might be described as Elton John meets a New Orleans Rag Time band or something like this:
Elton John + Rag Time = Scissor Sisters
