A Public Space: For Labor, for Leisure

A Public Space: For Labor, for Leisure

A collaboration between Amber Eve Anderson and I. In this collaborative work, we reflect on our conversations about labor, class, and access to leisure and public spaces, as understood through the limits of capitalism. The work is an archive of the public parks within a 1-mile radius of our home and a selection of painted figures from stock photography and the Wikipedia pages for Labor and Leisure. The archive also functions as a printable document that invites viewers to cut out and arrange the figures and green spaces enacting notions of both labor and leisure.
