In her exhibition, "Collection of Whispers", Sunni Forcier examines each piece as a specimen under her personal lens for analysis, treating the creation of her work as an investigative process. She works intuitively, allowing the process and the materials to guide her decisions. Forcier’s impulse to take this exploratory approach comes from a litany of health issues and other unexpected circumstances within her family that have led her to delve into themes of memory, time, history, and impermanence. The works in her exhibition—a collection of books, which Forcier has dismantled and incorporated found objects and seemingly mundane illustrations into—speaks on the larger subject of curiosity opening the door to a personal history. Sunni Forcier earned her MFA in Photography from the University of Houston in 2019. She was a Teaching Fellow at UH from fall of 2017 through spring of 2019. In 2016, Forcier had a solo exhibition, "Investigating Luminosity", at Third Space (UH). In 2019, she participated in the group exhibition "UH School of Art 41st Annual MFA Thesis Exhibition" at the Blaffer Art Museum (Houston). In 2015, Sunni Forcier was published in Photographer’s Forum, "Best of College Photography".
