#AISSLobo Jamie Sagg is a Mechanical Engineering major and a super-active #UNM Senior! You can find Jamie bouncing between student org meetings like Dine of UNM, the National Society of Leadership and Success or running meetings as the current UNM AISES president. Jamie’s also an active mentor in the #AISS Sidekicks Mentorship Program and is taking a full credit load this semester – clearly, she’s got great balancing skills! She’s working her way toward a master’s degree and eventually a doctoral degree to achieve her career goal of working in the energy field - overcoming the challenges of generating and storing sustainable energy is where she intends to place her focus. Jamie’s grandmother is her hero & she hopes to have as much wisdom, kindness, and generosity to share with her own grandchildren someday. We’ll leave you with Jamie’s words of wisdom: “Don’t get discouraged if it’s taking you longer than expected to accomplish your goals”. #GoLobos #NavajoWays #NativeEngineers

As the online takeover comes to a close, I would like to thank you for joining me on this explorative experience. The photographs, both virtual and physical, represent my personal viewpoint of the world. @a_vernacular_response will continue to develop and expand throughout the year as the presence and essence of both reality and fantasy as one.

Love and Art,

"An artwork is never exhausted. It never becomes empty. No work of art addresses us always in the same way. The result is we must answer it differently each time we encounter it." (Godamer, 1997, pg. 44)

Photography is the creation of a visual space with the illusion of reality and disposition of an object/experience. The exhibition of such is the mere documentation of the community experience that is simultaneously created as an ongoing expression of life.

"American Indians are our only true American artists, our real cultural heritage, an incredible creative force that have been a very real source of inspiration to the fortunate few who have made Indian art part of their living experience. "
