Shore compass (21:00, red orange), 2018

Over the years, Eliasson has explored countless variations on the compass. The Shore compass series incorporates materials gathered from remote beaches throughout Iceland with objects at hand in the studio. A magnet attached to the cluster of materials transforms it into a compass that aligns itself with the north–south axis.
