Artist's statement on this artwork originally published on the @laborcamp Instagram account:
Perhaps it was the fact that hurricane Laura was reported as “catastrophic” and “unsurvivable” that made me think about the broader disaster context for COVID-19. What constitutes “breaking news” anyway' Shouldn’t the climate disaster be breaking news every day'
