I realise it is in a sense an depressing subject matter to deal with (missing people etc) nevertheless, this is where the processes of materials/experimentation/artist research has led me, and I do have a strong interest in the metaphorical relationship to the jigsaw. For example, a jigsaw is a puzzle, a mystery. The various clues eventually lead to (although not in all cases) a resolution of the puzzle. The absolute devastation felt by the loss of a loved one to the families of missing people, must be unfathomable. Trying to piece together their lives with so much uncertainty to the wherabouts of family members; are they dead etc,  the sense of not knowing, no 'closure', the uncertainty; the "missing piece".
