lost, lost property is the act of collecting information from lost property on the street, and from photographs of such lost property, I create the missing half in order to create a whole. Ironically, the original property may, of course, have eventually been picked up by its proprietor and, if it is so, my new creation of the missing half will then never meet its other half and therefore, in itself, becomes lost property. This activity, in fact, becomes an almost contradictory allegory of the act of collecting. As there is no absolutely perfect world, either psychologically or physically, I continue to collect as an attempt to attain it.
