Description: Two-hundred and fifty A4 size posters were printed with words and abstract symbols related to the experience of engaging with the city (as a nine-to-five commuter) and the experience of working on a computer throughout the day.  The symbols identified the movement of traffic, the merging of people and cars entering the CBD and computer terminology such as 'edit undo' or 'control' that related to both the mechanics of work and the city experience.  The posters were then attached to every telegraph pole from the Action Researcher/Performer's suburban home to the middle of the Queen Street Mall in Brisbane's CBD, following the exact route she took to work everyday.
