This installation was created from found photographs and items in the streets of Buenos Aires in 2007. The found photographs, negatives and plaques were repainted and each element was marked on a map of the city. The lost items carry the weight of the desaparecidos, or "The Disappeared". The photos were often found near plaques describing where people disappeared. In a city which at times feels set on forgetting, there is so much to learn from what is found on the street.
