Artist's statement on this artwork originally published on the @laborcamp Instagram account:
I read an article today, with the phrase “permanent pandemic” in it, and my mind went into a momentary spasm. Within a split second I shifted from resilient hopefulness, to urgent determination, and to defeated despair. Then I regained composure, and started again... and then I realized how much this one second spasm reflected the entire duration of pandemic to date.
