HIFF41 AND TAIJI TERASAKI PRESENT: KAIMANA
An Immersive Mist-Media Film Installation
Bishop Museum Ho‘okipa Lawn
This experience is included with Bishop Museum Admission
Hawai‘i-based artist Taiji Terasaki presents KAIMANA—an outdoor, walk-through art and film installation offering a cinematic work projected onto a dramatic, interactive mist curtain. The images projected onto the mist-screen reflect memories of old Hawai‘i and Pacific island life, highlighting fond memories of the Waikīkī Natatorium’s community and vibrant ocean culture.
Through this provocative lens, archival photographs and recently discovered film footage conjure up the nostalgic enchantment of Hawai‘i’s swimming and surfing identity, emphasizing the bonds between architecture and activity, between place and life.
