The project was conceived as a typology of absence, a series of liquidators of the Chernobyl disaster consequences, a faceless person who disappeared for the state, which could not be identified by any signs, as well as it was impossible to recognize radiation. But liquidators did not disappear - like all of the radioactive cosmos which was materialized in people, objects, places that became waste materials of the disaster. Rehabilitated lands, deprivation of benefits, construction of a new nuclear power station are things of the same order - liquidation the memory of the disaster.
