Domino Compass is a new work by Malmö-based artist Maria E Harrysson (b. 1979). The work will be on view at KRETS for three hours, and will be ritually activated by the artist before the visitors. Afterwards there will be no traces left in the room.
As in many of her previous works, Harrysson explores the relation between human and nature based on notions of a forthcoming apocalypse. Domino Compass is a temporary sculptural installation that consists of organic shapes and processes revolving around opposites such as light and darkness, the natural and the articifial, the controlable and the non-controlable. By studying and manipulating scientific experiments and different ages’ conceptions of the world, metaphorical chain reactions and chains of consequences are created, which set the solid in motion. How does our perception of the world affect the world?
