Bureau of Found Art Objects
A lost property office, as a memorial to the artist's practice, developed over the past 10 years, designed to dissipate over the period of the show and to exist in the future on a distributed basis.

Roger Miles - Lost and Found
I am interested in the history, memorialisiation and cannibalisation of found objects.
More recently, I have been investigating ways of building my own memorials through interactive installations.
