illustrate some of the things that have been lost & found. 

Distant memories, ideas, notions & plans. Or maybe lost homes or friends or summers of love?

And their found counterparts. Finding yourself, Finding your way, Finding the words,

Finding your footing, Finding a friend.

Or how about the things that have been lost & found in Lancaster & Morecambe? The Tourist info centre, The art school, The adult education centre? old buildings, pleasure palaces & fairgrounds and those found spaces that have been renewed.
