270° is an installation made mostly from sand, pebbles and calcium carbonate. Seaweed and hints of plastic and iron waste lace the materials. At the first glance the sculpture represents a traditional compass rose, a symbol used widely, for decorating palaces as well as placed on remote cliffs by the fishermen. However, on a closer look this compass only has three points.
270° is installed as part of my exhibition Shoreline at Gallery Huuto, Helsinki in March 2018. The installation was placed to emphasize the key theme of the exhibition, namely, how our options and perception are limited by the use of symbols and rhetoric.
