In Disappearance the gradual destruction of the forest is underscored by the melancholic piano score by John Cage and the jagged interjection of the chainsaw. The film, a concert for piano and chainsaw, bridges the work of Jorge Orta from his Rosario period (1972-1984) and the Amazonia body of work that Lucy + Jorge Orta commenced in 2010.
