  6. is one of the most important and significant works of my life.
  7. In a way it marks a very important point in my life as an artist
  8. because it is a sculpture that I dedicated to the 144 missing people.
  9. In this country we lived under a military dictatorship, and a union,
  10. The Association of State Workers, wanted to build a monument to the missing.
  11. I tried to reflect the theme of their disappearance, not from the perspective of death but from life
  12. so I wanted to make it as glorious as I could.
  13. I used stainless steel because I associated it with them,
  14. as if they were steel, untarnished by time.
  15. I incorporated sound into it, so that when the wind blows the pipes strike each other
  16. to create the theme of their memory
  17. I had the idea of placing 144 of these so that they were all represented.
  18. Having survived the 1970's
  19. I believe I am alive to be able to express these things.
  20. It is as though, because of this,
  21. I have been given the opportunity to create a work such as this,
  22. it is as though I have a raison d'etre, you see ?
