Artist's statement on this artwork originally published on the @laborcamp Instagram account:
Today, I could not help but think of the national disaster metric that is 9/11. When I started working on this report this morning, I checked the COVID death stats, which listed 196,345. I checked again when I was finishing the drawing: 469 more deaths had been reported while I worked on this piece.
