Infinite Labor of the Cosmic Race, 2014, was part of the exhibition "A Feather in Each Hand" at Taller Boricua Gallery, NYC. The work is informed by the 'hidden worker' in our midst. Usually referred to as 'immigrant worker.' I want to change the language and thought usually associated with those people that unlock themselves from whatever social-political system and travel to a new setting for work. Allegory is used to examine labor from a timeless and continuous point of view, along with a sense of high achievement and accomplishment.
