One rule in Calibration Circle dictates the choreography: the red circle, held by the white-dressed ballerina, must remain at the center of the frame regardless of where the pirouettes take her. Against a black background, the locked circle and ballerina seem to hover in space.
Through this peculiar performance a system is made visible: here the repetition creates a mesmerizing space for passive observation and absorption, which then turns into endless recurrence.
This work has been included in the publication "Lenticular Scorpions find Cheese on Mars" as a lenticular print; also as a screensaver at Tensta Library and website of Tensta Konsthall (Stockholm).
