Wherever you go, there you are
Assemblage of found objects
African carved figures with nautical compass on turntable
by Dale Copeland, 2020

The turntable was for working on bonsai trees. Here it holds a compass and these fixed figures.
When you spin the turntable, the figures and the compass spin, looking forwards, looking outwards,
but the magnetic needle returns to its starting position, always pointing north.
No amount of travel will take you away from your own reality.

Dale's studio can be found at Puniho,
