The process of constructing the research, begun at university and continued in public spaces and then in artistic institutional spaces, observes the boundary and modulates the form in which to translate the conceptual intuition between the ambit dedicated to art and the outside, between the symbolic dimension and the real one. The constructional artefacts produced allow for the flowing of various levels of consistency of the work, ranging from the immaterial to extreme concrete expression, considering as the supporting texture of the research itself the negotiation of permits, the translation between the ambits and the conversion of the languages. Within the prospect of a design that is never closed, where the result of a phase in turn becomes useful material for the next experimental passages, the exhibition phase is not considered as the crystallization of the work but rather as a privileged experimental opportunity. Artistic practice, therefore, is applied as a tool of experimental research that acquires, as a necessary and decisive component, the identification of the organizational nature of the context on which it acts. The artistic frame exceptionally allows to develop an experimental period within the spaces of everyday life, acting according to its own operational rules. In response to the analysis of the context, an "organizational analogue" is created and presented as a work of art. The "Analogous" is not a representation or a performance, but rather the assumption, via linguistic mimesis, of a pre-extant object to the form of which a change is made. The product is evaluated on the border of the language through which it interacts, allowing the components of the environment to negotiate its pertinence. The notion of "frame" allows one to imagine the localization of the dynamic border between the ambits.
