MISSING

Using information from a missing persons website, I used Google Earth to photograph certain parts of the country. The areas were places that unidentified bodies had been found.

I contacted photographers local to those areas and asked them to take pictures of certain places, without revealing motives for the chosen sites.

I constructed a darkened corridor that was approx. 5m in length. At one end of the corridor a projection of the above image was show over a 4 minute duration. The image faded from full colour to black over the 4 minutes. As the image faded out, the sound of a doctor reading a report was played, describing how an unknown person had been found on the beach, followed by the post-mortem report of that person.
