The strongest aspect of travelling for Vica is what she genuinely loves and considers important, especially when she thinks about wild camping - it is to experience how we can solve the same things with less. Everything slows down, and everything becomes simpler, and that gave her the basic idea for this project: to create something as simple as possible with as few tools as possible. She used a sawing frame, an Archimedes drill, a needle file and a burnisher. The shape refers to the arrows we see when travelling, telling us where to go. She also suggests directions but with places of state of being instead of actual locations.
