Mānoa Campus, Haigo and Irene Shen Gallery Add to Calendar

Sticky installation bends reality, offering a surreal spatial experience. Inspired by Hawaii’s tropical climate, the sticky structures reflect a sense of organic strength and living energy. Its form is reminiscent of the roots of a banyan tree and its gesture is similar to that of a frogs tongue. The sticky structures shoot out, capture, break, drag and move surrounding walls. They animate the space through manipulation, emphasizing the changes which occur within the design process. The artists' aim is to provoke thought regarding the possibilities of architecture, organic and sustainable processes, encouraging people to break boundaries and create new ideas. This project was completed using recycled bamboo poles and cardboard. The designers consist of assistant professor Hongtao Zhou and his 14 graduate students participating in a sculpture class. The Class has formed an architecture residency to promote the art of Architectural installation in Honolulu.
