San Martin has focused on creating artists’ books and prints that tell the political history of her native country, Chile. She observes and reflects on socio-political events through the construction of memory and visual layers to articulate how Chile made its history during the dictatorship of Pinochet from 1973-1990.

Designed, printed, and bound by the artist. Images screenprinted on Arches 88 paper. The text was printed digitally on matt paper in Courier. A flag book with images in black and white documents the people who disappeared during the 1973-­1990 period of the military dictatorship in Chile. A full list of the details and disappeared to this day is given in the book. Boards bound in white cloth with title in black on front board.

This second edition was printed in 2019.
