Persist, Repeat, Reflect was a sculptural installation that celebrated the persistence of the human being's interaction with the landscape of Edgewood, New Mexico. The work engaged the memory and nostalgia of material such as adobe mud for building, earthen plastering techniques and architectural forms unique to the region. The structure mirrored back the viewer and backdrop of the environment in contemplation, examination and reflection. Persist, Repeat, Reflect actively engaged interaction with the audience. The viewer was confronted with the size of the sculpture that loomed overhead and created an immersive space that reflected back the natural environment in the facets of multiple iterations.
