Aliens of Manila is an artistic series started in 2014 by Leeroy New. With Aliens of Manila: New York Colony the artist created an immersive, site-specific installation responding to the structure of Pintô International's headquarter in New York's East Village. He engineered a warping, psychedelic sculpture constructed from food covers, flexible conduit, fiberglass strips, cable ties, and other materials that clings to the architecture of Pintô’s East Village loft. The sculpture comprised materials from recycling centers, surplus shops, dollar stores, and industrial market districts local to New York. The series speaks to the wider experience of cultural displacement but is profoundly informed by the artist’s own familial experience with the phenomenon of what he refers to as “OFW” — Overseas Filipino Workers
