"Lost deals with the definition of a 'what is a body form' and personal relation to our body. Lost has a head, trapped in a ball, and a body that looks more like a cushion. Yet, it has clothing since it dressed with fabrics, and it even has body hair in the center of the cushion. Yet, it defies our traditional notion of 'how a human' would look like. It questions how we relate to a body that has not a recognizable form. The head is dislocated from the body which may be settle implication of the current life-styles where mind and body is often separated." --artist's description from image list
