After the “Sun vs Shadow” project I made penalty-circle drawings where I simulated the way my direction of walking was defined by the orbit of the sun.


“The Machinery” of these drawings is based on the fact that my hand is slightly more steady when I draw a line counter-clockwise than clockwise. Combined with a set of rules including rotating tangents, the drawing will always end up in some sort of irregular spiral/ double-spiral shape.


At this point map-projects and punishment-circle drawings had inspired and fed upon each other, and it felt natural to show them together. I got the opportunity in the exhibition “It’s alive!”.
