"Canopy" is a new media installation that investigates the shapes and patterns of three majestic trees in Austin that hold unique significance, including Sorin Oak, the biggest oak tree in Austin stands at 43 feet tall and is 250-300 years old; Homeless Memorial Tree - Richard Troxell with ‘House the Homeless’ began the tradition 26 years ago. He planted a tree at Lady Bird Lake to honor those who died in poverty; and Da Lab Home Tree, a personal space for meditation.

With light and projections, Jamal Hussain seeks to manifest the energy of these trees. This project is the spark of an exploration on what trees provide for us. Aside from the climate impacts, trees are a source of refuge and mental healing. Yet, according to the science journal Nature, approximately 42 million trees are cut down each day. As the city of Austin expands and new developments take over natural areas, what do we stand to lose?

Hussain is a New Media Artist working at the intersection of art, technology, and science. 

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until September 26.
