"Quieto" (the spanish for -Stay-) is an expression that denotes a lot in contemporary Mexican culture, "Says a lot by saying little". And it is precisely here, in the brevity of the idea where lies the value of this project. Using the language of the iconic object, you get a simple but very expressive setup, full of nuances and details that engage the eye of the observer. "Quieto" is anything but a passive object, that becomes into something that arouses curiosity, interaction and dialogue.
