Kai nu’u Kanaloa






By Espadaysantacruz / For CPB


Project manager

The waves and currents of Hawaii have a particular power and size, due to the Hawaiian seabed. KAI installation uses this data to create a wave that represents Hawaiian culture, land, and its special location on planet earth.
The sound of the North Shore in the CPB offices.

Using rainsticks, the installation creates the sound of the waves with the real data of the Hawaiian swell. In KAI We use the wave’s height, period, and direction to control the installation. The rainsticks move and sway gently, creating waves in sync and producing the subtle sound of waves in the shoreline.
