"A 2.6m pole operating as a digital compass is balanced on the artists head. The compass is set to the bearing of a section of the Berlin wall along Bernauer Strabe. If the pole deviates from the bearing the lights at the end of the pole switch off. The work explores the relationship between the body and the physical structure of the pole that is sits self a materialization of the compass co-ordinate." - Artist Statement
