DescriptionPersistence is a kinetic installation exploring the conflict between geologic and human timescales. It reveals the collective frailty of our memory, and the dire need to preserve lifeforms on this planet. As the robotic arm rotates across a phosphorescent canvas, ultraviolet lasers activate the underlying pigment—revealing fleeting planetary memory.
