Objects that had been left in the streets of Lisbon for others to take care of were picked up and taken away. They were washed, dried, ironed, framed, tested, dusted, cleaned and then returned to their places. A diary of this caregiving was kept in Portuguese and then translated into English.

Matérias Baixás (Baixás Matters) by Antonio Contador was undertaken under the auspices of the Triangle Network Workshop 360º Ambiente e Processo, at Hangar, an artistic research centre, in Lisbon, in November 2015. 

The diary printed on both sides (portuguese and english versions), A3+ format folded (pdf)

The poster with the pictures of the objects, printed on both sides, soft grey paper, A3 format folded (pdf)
