Looking out of a train window the artist notices the inscriptions – Indicatore – on the sign post at Indicatore Station. She takes a photograph: Indicator of an Indicator. Indicatore is a self-reference as well as an Italian village near Arezzo. Postcards of the photograph of Indicatore Station are sent to friends with the request to formulate a commission to be executed by the artist at Indicatore. Everyone is asked to imagine Indicatore…

The artist visits the village to execute the commissions. Three days of work, explorations, adventure…”
