Compass II is a performative new media installation art environment constructed for interplay between viewers and artist. The installation consists of a marine compass and four screens that are aligned with the four main geographic directions East, West, North and South. Made from canvas and a rectangular wooden frame, each screen resembles a propaganda poster.  Offering multilayered four-channel projections, the work allows the viewers to move between layers by physically moving within the space formed by the four screens and by turning the compass in the middle. Each layer shows a finished single‚Äêchannel video work alongside raw material from which it has been composed. The audio tracks include revolutionary and traditional folk songs. The work as a whole explores the potential of visual, audio, spatial and interactive montage to raise awareness of our joint responsibility for social change.

Atanas Djonov is a Sydney based emerging media artist, born in Plovdiv, Bulgaria in 1972. In 1994 he completed a video-production course at the College of Journalism and Mass Communication at Sofia University. In 1996 he moved to Sydney, Australia. In 2002 he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree with Honours Class I in Fine Arts (Time-Based Art) from the College of Fine Arts, University of NSW.

His art practice incorporates a variety of different forms such as video installation art, film, sound and animation.
