Advice Station is part psychiatry office and part information booth where visitors can sit and talk about their experiences and offer their tips, pointers and opinions about the art fairs in Miami. In exchange visitors will be asked to offer advice that will be added to the collective advice receptacle from which future visitors can gain wisdom. The advice collected from visitors in the room will be included in a book that can be ordered and shipped after the fair.
