Losing a possession is a universal experience. 'Lost Property' is used as a lens through which we can observe the generation of today’s relationship with possessions in a world where almost anything can be replaced at the click of a button or digitised for no extra cost.
‘Lost and Found’ is explored through various mediums such as 2D and 3D illustration, risograph printing and virtual reality. Each outcome explores different aspects of lost property in its various forms.
Among the outcomes is ‘The Lost Archive’, a unique space experienced through virtual reality. The work collates a series of interviews that reveal people’s relationships with objects they have lost. The viewer navigates the space, encountering a series of lost possessions, all exaggerated in scale – these ordinary objects emphasise the extent of the loss.
