5 Pieces Of Evidence
This video and sound installation with steel armature, reflects on missing persons, urban myths, transitoriness, maps and global networks. The five screens in the work are narratively organized along the lines of a 'whodunit'. Missing persons notices, street maps, demographic statistics and images of pipelines, rail tracks, harbours and city-scapes evoke a multi-layered set of speculations on the way urban spaces stage everyday 'disappearances'.
