Honouring the homeless people who perished in 2020.

Every year, Arrels, an organization in Barcelona working to end with homelessness, celebrates a memorial to honour the people living on the streets of the city who have passed away.

For the 2020 memorial, they entrusted Domestic Data Streamers to shape it. We wanted to make the 70 missing people present in the space through that personal object that used to connect them to the city: their shoes.

A demonstration of missing people

A square at the heart of Barcelona was filled with 70 pairs of shoes, the names of their owners and something they’ll be remembered for. The result was a demonstration of missing people that beyond remembering each of them, gave visibility to the unequal reality of living on the streets.
