Axis Calibration (59.9º, Oslo), 2015
Found household objects, cast concrete blocks, wood supports
Exhibition: Axis Calibration, Galleri Seilduken, KHiO, Oslo, NO
The objects in the installation are rotated to the north and are tiled to 59.9º (the latitude of Oslo), placing them in parallel to the axis of the planet. As used in the title, calibration refers to the act of correction or aligning, and to adjust by taking external factors into account. Household furniture and items were chosen to create contrast between what surrounds us in our daily lives and the planet as an object in itself—to create a shift in scale towards the planetary.
