Last Known Whereabouts

mobile application

Last Known Whereabouts is an IOS mapping application concerning missing persons in the Los Angeles area.

The project features an interactive map that allows user’s to track their proximity to the areas in which missing persons were either last seen, or last known to have visited.

The goal of the project is to point to a hidden geography that sits right atop our own. The landscape of the missing is one superimposed over the ubiquitous spaces that we occupy day to day. The strip malls, bus stops, and suburban streets where we find comfort take on a far more sinister identity when their histories are brought to light.
