Still Standing

Still Standing is informed by the succeeding transformations the West End area has experienced since the 1890’s, shifting from a densely forested area to a vivid urban neighborhood. By mirroring specific building methods, Still Standing salutes the previously dominant Victorian architectural aesthetic. It also acknowledges, through the use of the fish scale pattern of shingles, the importance of nature and the role of biomimicry in our interactions with the world. The sculpture is ultimately a reflection on the notion of change, simultaneously considering what was, what is and what will be.
