Every human being is a place. Every woman, every man, every child, every old person are themselves a living-space which moves and unfolds, a place in the sense of time, geography, volume and colour. Each time a human being dies, a house shuts up and a place is lost. My work is its remembrance. The freeze-frame of all those bodies which in their unfolding, disappear at lightening speed. My work is its remembrance. The freeze-frame of all those bodies which in their unfolding, disappear at lightening speed. My work is their volume. hing else. But it is none-the-less an art object that the artist has created in a casual manner from commonplace objects by retouching their usual size and position. Jaume Plensa Barcelona, July 2000
