Esperanza Mayobre focuses on themes of invisibility through visual formats that reflect on travel, exploration, and displacement. In Immigrant of the Month, she references the reward programs corporations use to motivate employees. The empty frame and engraved plaque invites immigrant workers to insert their image, commemorating both the invisible hardships and positive effects of immigrant labor on the overall economy of the United States.
