The series of images is focused on the compass as a tool of precision and creativity. It is both engaging for the user and mindless as it does its job. It can provide a range of arcs and circles determined by the user by a single turn of the dial. It is mindless in that one simply rotates the compass and lets it draw. As simple of an object as it is, it does its calculated job well. It can be considered an ordinary object, something simple, yet it can make ones job much more effective and efficient.
The images hint at the necessity and duality of an object such as the compass. It is an object that can be easily overlooked even though it facilitates a job.
