Seismo-sound compass, 2018

This hanging work, one of a long-standing series of artworks inspired by compasses, incorporates a piece of driftwood from Iceland, a glass tube, and a small rubber ball. The ends of the driftwood have been planed and painted red and green, with the red end directed northward by a magnet. At the slightest seismic activity, the ball swings and hits the tube, causing it to emit the note A.
