The Branches is a pin strip collaborative installation designed by myself and artist Mari Omori as the start of an expanding collision between the extroverted, immersive nature of art and the introverted, solitary nature of literature. The Branches is the first iteration of a larger developing exhibition entitled The Forest, based on my poetry collection of the same name published by Riza Press in 2021.

The Branches has been exhibited at the following:

Public art, Houston Community College - Eastside Campus (Felix Morales Building) (January 22 - March 15, 2020)
2020 Faculty Art Show, Lone Star College-Kingwood Fine Art Gallery (online) (November 2-December 3, 2020)
