Artist's statement on this artwork originally published on the @laborcamp Instagram account:
Despite the clear and deadly implications, the regime is pushing the “re-opening” onto us.
When the pandemic arrived in the US, it was not a surprise: we could see it coming from Europe. We could see its devastation in plain sight. Yet we let it sweep over the country, and claim its deadly toll. We know the second wave is coming, and we are letting it swallow us again.
