As my Lost and Found project is ongoing I am always collecting and documenting things I find, all will be available for your viewing pleasure right here and at the moment ephemera is a big one, for some reason I find notes, handwritten papers,  lists etc all the time, I have a lot of stuff and I am in the process of compiling another Found Note Book.

I found this on the street the other day, it has some lovely damage to it so I am really looking forward to printing it or seeing what I can do. I have been playing around with it in Photoshop and Illustrator , have a look

a few of the little things I have found lately, the funny thing is I found a second blue doll shoe later the same day in almost the same place and then.. lost it again.

Some things I found on the beach and the road by the beach at Punta Del Hidalgo. One spot along the road has a large pile of old tiles, probably from the old houses that are there.

 

It’s such a beautiful place but there is always something like this right around the corner.. for a small island it is quite populated and there are both working mining and industry and remnants of old industry, many ruins and crumbling forgotten houses and other buildings.

As part of my ongoing Lost & Found Museum project I created and am making a book from the found notes, shopping lists and other ephemera that I find in the streets, I think this stuff, as a collection is extremely interesting so since I have been here I have collected some more for a new book.. here is what I have so far.

some found objects I have collected, there will be an ad hoc installation in the wasteland next to uni and I will leave the items with their gold plated dopplegangers to the elements and hope that people add their pictures to the blog, the idea is for people to take them, re use them repurpose them and share the pictures with me.
