"Disappearance" is a filmed concert for piano and chainsaw created by Lucy + Jorge Orta at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, 2015. It bridges the work of Jorge Orta during his Rosario period (1972-1984) and the Amazonia project that Lucy + Jorge Orta began in 2010. The gradual destruction of the forest is underscored by the melancholic piano and the jagged interjection of the chainsaw.
