The bureaucracy of Babel, 2014. Spray paint on celebratory banner, dimensions variable. A Jorge Luis Borges quote is altered to read: Que el cielo exista, aunque mi lugar sea el infierno. Que yo sea ultrajado y aniquilado, pero que en un instante, en un ser, Tu enorme burocracia se justifique. (English: Let heaven exist, though my own place may be in hell. Let me be tortured and battered and annihilated, but let there be one instant, one creature, wherein thy enormous bureaucracy may find its justification.)
