  • The trace of a removed notice on a wall shows a strong presence of the message even though it can not be seen anymore. The fact that the message was released in public and removed by someone is “the message” in a sense. The photo of a removed notice on a wall was recycled as a notice and was photographed again. The trace is the ironic message itself to our ignorance of the message.

The message won’t arrive.
