Through the Oblivion Tube is a media fusion project
which combines sculpture, performance, and
photography. Oblivion is defined as the state of being
completely forgotten or unknown. I see oblivion as a place
that can’t be visited. Much like a black hole, oblivion
is a vacuum that eats endless amounts. It is a dimension
all of its own. We are not in oblivion, at least not yet.
The Oblivion Tube is designed to observe a moment in
time that is being sucked away into oblivion.

Idle Dilemma

A series of larger-than life human figures made of
cement and rebar, anthropomorphize the massive
pillars of the elevated rail project currently under construction
in western Honolulu. The Honolulu elevated rail project is the most recent
in a long history of social works projects in the U.S.
based on the discourse of progress initiated in the 1930’s. Idle
Dilemma
 questions how long we can favor the economic
model of development over the needs of the population majority.

Mass  2012, 4000 unique -mold plaster cast fingers Dimensions: 46” x 5’ x 5’


Mass
Designed as a performance based sculpture,every day for three months I dipped my
fingers 
into a low temperature wax which was
later used to produce the positive finger form.
The fragmented finger became a marker of time
where each finger suggests a moment and my existence within it. Placed together in a
defined space, they appear as a unit, defined by
their similarities in color and size.

Dirt Ladies II is the second installation in a series
of cast soil figures. I am interested in the destiny
and economic implications of the land in our
neighborhoods . Dirt Ladies II contains soil from
Wilhemina Rise, an upper middle class suburb of
Honolulu. Dump trucks were removing soil from a
retaining wall in the neighborhood to make room
for  a parking garage. Removed soil was taken to
a landfill at the expense of the property owner
which was determined by weight. Soil from the
same area is purchased, refined and
used for the University baseball field.

Quirks

These ceramic pieces are an embodiment personality
characteristics isolated and blown up. They are taken from
acquaintances and those who I see only momentarily.
