Calibrated for the Ends of the World
At first Calibrated for the Ends of the World appears to be a non-functioning plumb bob. The angle at which it hangs slightly defies gravity by 23.4 degrees – the angle on which the axis the earth spins. Just like a broken clock that tells the correct time twice a day, this plumb bob is correct at only two points on the globe. If you were to view this plumb bob at the North or South Pole from space, it would still appear to hang at an angle even though it would be pointing towards the center of the earth. Calibrated for the Ends of the World speaks to the relative aspects in which we experience the universe.
