Artist's Description

In recent times, scientists have discovered a new subspecies breeding out of the human race, which has now been classified ‘homo workaholicus’. Unlike almost all other species, which labour primarily to gather food, this breed has been observed working tirelessly for many days on end, often ignoring family and other tribe members, and without any reward either being offered or delivered.

We captured a specimen and brought it into the lab where we attempted to engage it in a variety of fun activities, as demonstrated with the bubbles pictured here. Not only did it fail to relax and avoid engaging in any of the attempted pursuits, but it appeared to be mystified by the very concept of leisure.

In fact, its only response was to ask if we would like it to type up our results.
We accepted.
