'Signpost to Jupiter' is an aluminium and stovepipe enamel sign that points skywards, towards the planet Jupiter, at a 70 degree angle. It bears the inscription 'Jupiter – 893 million to 964 million kilometres', denoting the distance from Jupiter Artland to the planet Jupiter; a distance that constantly changes due to the elliptical orbits that both the Earth and Jupiter make around the Sun. Between 1 December 2008 and 31 January 2009, Peter Liversidge submitted one hundred and thirty-four proposals for Jupiter Artland, spanning a hugely ambitious range of projects. Three of the proposals – including Signpost to Jupiter – were given material existence. Signpost to Jupiter is 'proposal 90' and is placed along Jupiter Artland’s driveway.
