"The work was an attempt to try to gather elements that were vanishing—that have been abandoned—and then create a site for it. As an artist I’m always moving myself continuously. I don’t have a center. I assume the center of other people, moving from one condition to another, the condition of the slave or the condition of the immigrant."
