In collaboration with Artifariti International, Western Saharawi Artist Mohamed Sulaiman, Afapredesa Org., the community of 27th February Refugee Camp, and the families of the Kidnapped (Disappeared) Saharawis.

"Disappeared" was produced as a reaction to working alongside the families of the Disappeared people (kidnapped) and Western Saharawi Organisation for the Disappeared Afapredesa.

THE PROJECT WAS COMPRISED OF 526 CANDLES PLACED ON THE MAST HILL OVERLOOKING CAMP 27TH FEBRUARY, LIGHTING UP THE NIGHT SKY.  EACH CANDLE REPRESENTED A DISAPPEARED PERSON AND REIGNITED THE MEMORY OF THAT PERSON.  THE IMAGE OF THE COMBINED 526 CANDLES FORMED THE TEXT “DISAPPEARED” IN ARABIC.  AS THE CANDLES FLICKERED, THE HISTORY, TRADITIONS AND STORIES OF THE ELDERLY WERE SHARED.  SYMBOLICALLY, AS THE NIGHT GREW OLD, THE TEXT DISAPPEARED.
