The photo shows a monumental wall at the center of the Queens Museum with painted illustrations inspired by comic book graphics that are commonly used to represent movement and contact.

Christine Sun Kim’s new site-responsive project, Time Owes Me Rest Again, is a mural on the monumental wall encasing the Panorama of the City of New York. Reenacting the physical and psychological articulation of American Sign Language, this site-specific work surfaces the societal and systemic inequity that persists between Deaf communities and the hearing power structures. Time Owes Me Rest Again also reflects upon the unease and fatigue induced by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic in New York City. 

El nuevo proyecto sensible al entorno de Christine Sun Kim, El tiempo me debe de nuevo un descanso, es un mural en el muro monumental que rodea al Panorama de la Ciudad de Nueva York. Al recrear la articulación física y psicológica de la lengua de signos americana, esta obra adaptada a su ubicación pone al descubierto la desigualdad social y sistémica que persiste entre las comunidades de sordxs y las estructuras de poder auditivo. El tiempo me debe de nuevo un descanso también refleja la incomodidad y el cansancio provocados por la actual pandemia del COVID-19 en la Ciudad de Nueva York.
