When activated, The Bureau of Lost Causes operates as a place to share thoughts and personal experiences of loss. Visitors are being invited to take part in a conversation-based performance. They bring to the table whatever they feel like sharing. Afterwards a small record is written down, based on the memory of that conversation. Assembling fragments,The Bureau of Lost Causes keeps track of this records by archiving them onto a long roll of paper.
