Visitors enter a plane of horizontal trees positioned at different heights in the space. The trees are not still, but rotating, constantly changing their position and the pathways through the space. Anna Rún juxtaposes technology and nature in her creative process as a means to tending to the relationships between humans and the natural world. She continually examines positions within this relationship. In the work ´Compasses´ she attempts to disrupt people's perception of the space with a performative staging of trees, a choreographed movement which affects and includes the viewer's presence. She brings nature into the exhibition space with an unpredictable outcome. The trees were acquired from forestring around Reykjavík, during the exhibition the cycle of a natural process can be witnessed.
