Footprints is an artwork supported by 50 performers, who use flour to print the hands of the passersby of the Chilean Courts Palace of Justice. After a while, a hairdryer will try to remove the handprints, which they will seem trying to resist to disappear, a symbol of the memory of Chile and the thousands of disappeared people in Latin America.
