The title is a reference to the famous painting by Salvador Dali called, "The Persistence of Memory". This is the painting you will remember as containing melting clocks. Like Dali's painting, the pieces of "Insistence" are also distorted. Dali's painting present a surreal landscape where objects and even time are warped. Everything is recognizable but warped and distorted, much like the view of the world we all have because of our own perceptions.
