A year or so ago a group of art students came to London to work on a project from a new art college in Croatia. In order to create some art from their experience they explored the interior public spaces of the Royal Festival Hall. Either during this process or immediately afterwards all of these students completely disappeared.

In this two-day class, you need to look for traces of these artists' work and also for a trace of these missing people. Where would you begin? I think by looking for anomalies in what is already there.
What work were they making? Why did they disappear? And are the answers to these two questions connected or completely separate?
Your project is this exploration and the art objects this investigation will generate. It can exist in any form - from a three-second performed re-enactment of the 'other you' that you are pursuing ....to an attempt to alter the opening hours of the Festival Hall's Poetry Library.
You might be artists but you also might come to art as ethnographers, sociologists, archaeologists, journalists, detectives etc… Or you might approach this project within any of these disciplines whose practice has just about slipped into being art.
So, you begin by going to a place to create a person who made some work and disappeared.
