Created as my final project for the ‘Artist in Ecology’ REU position I had on the Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico for the summer of 2014. Mesa View Over Time is meant to serve as a representation of my experience with a particular landscape, and how the landscape experience is not stagnant, but rather continually changing, evolving, growing and accumulating depth.

The clouds became a side project for stormy days, and allowed me to sit and sky-watch for as long as I wanted, immersed in the scale, beauty and power of New Mexican skies.

Special thanks to the National Science Foundation for funding me, and seeing the value in making art alongside scientific research.
