“I think it perfectly shows that although we’re surrounded by so many broken things, we can create something that works. In addition, I think it must be inspiring for children and youngsters who dream of being artists, as generation after generation has been told that in Venezuela you can’t make it, that in Venezuela, nobody cares for art. But here we see what a piece of art moves.”
