Description of work

Still Standing is a folding screen live structure made up of aluminum "shingles" evoking the cedar shakes of the old west end houses, First Nations plank houses and fish scales.

Artist statement

The West End of Vancouver has experienced many transformations as it has evolved from a densely forested area to an urban neighborhood. Still Standing salutes the neighborhood’s once dominant Victorian architectural aesthetic while alluding -- through its fish scale pattern -- to the role of biomimicry in our interactions with the world.
