This  project consist on a series of 12 medium format (55 x 75 cm) ink  drawings working with the violence recently experimented by the country  in its condition as a social and historical process. However, this  experiment looks for a more serene and enigmatic point of view, creating  a gap between the resulting abstract compositions and its original  media context. The creative process begins with the research for  explicit images from fire weapons confrontations released by the media.	 As	a	documentary ,	twelve	pictures were chosen, one for each month of  2010. The patterns revealed by the bullet holes in the images are taken  as a path for the construction of each drawing, resulting in  compositions that are directly connected and conditioned by the  circumstances of the event. Regarding this, the artwork has an intimate  relation to the topic and preserves its strength, while getting apart of  its usual morbid	imagery .	At	the	same	time,	it postulates the moment  the country is passing through as a social process capable of generating  valuable experiences: diamonds, for	the	maturity ,	awakening	and  transcendence of citizenship.
