Using the theme of being on a journey, the art is based on the leitmotif of compass orientation. The compass symbolises a grand order  the power of the poles and perfect geometry of the universe. ‘Navigating life’ is a metaphor for negotiating opportunities and challenges. The colour circle is also a perfect whole, with a fixed place for each colour. The compass and colour circle fuse in the art, creating orientation points and order for the hospital patients and staff.

Dansk tekst

Udfra metaforen at “være på vej” tager kunsten afsæt i ledemotivet Orientering efter himmelretningerne. Kompasset viser os den store orden, jordpolernes kraft og universets perfekte geometri. Vi anvender udtrykket at “navigere i livet” for indsigten i sit eget sind og forståelsen af ens muligheder. Farvecirklen er også en perfekt helhed, hvor hver farve har sin bestemte plads. Kompasset og farvecirklen smeltes sammen i kunsten og implementerer orientering og orden for patienter og personale i bygningen.
