In Disappearance, a duet for piano a chainsaw, the gradual destruction of the forest is underscored by the melancholic piano score composed by John Cage and the jagged interjection of a chainsaw.

Disappearance bridges two strands of Lucy + Jorge's research, the first dating back to the Rosario period (1972-1984) and secondly the Amazonia body of work the artists' began working on in 2009.
