Kudzu

Kudzu is a climbing, coiling, and trailing vine native to southern Japan and southeast China. Due to its out-of-control growth in the southeastern United States, the Kudzu vine has earned such nicknames as the "foot-a-night vine" and "the vine that ate the South.” Like a disease, addiction, or bad relationship, Kudzu slowly suffocates and stunts the growth of its victim.

Between and Betwixt

Between and Betwixt was originally inspired by Verne N. Rockcastle’s poem entitled Recycled. An excerpt reads, “The glass of water you’re about to drink deserves a second thought, I think. The water in you is between and betwixt, and having traversed is thoroughly mixed, so someone quenching a future thirst could easily drink what you drank first!” Between and Betwixt explores how human experiences such as hunger, thirst, love, pain, joy, sorrow and death also pass through and are recycled within all of us.
