Orbis et Globus (Circle and Sphere) in Grímsey Island is an artwork that was placed on the Arctic Circle in 2017. It is a 3m diameter globe that will follow the fluctuating North-South part of the Arctic Circle until it leaves the island.
Hrísey is the second largest island in Iceland: Paved streets in the small village, tidy gardens and an outstanding view of the surrounding mountains. The ferry, Sævar, sails between Hrísey and the mainland village of Ásskógssandur. The journey only takes about 15 minutes.
