Wind Kinetic Sculpture

Stainless Steel

18’ H and 13’ H

Created for a Haseko Corporation resort at Ewa Beach, Oahu, Hawaii.

Two Elements

This wind kinetic and water sculpture, located at the Haseko Corporation Resort in Ewa Beach, Oahu, Hawaii, is positioned at the entrance of a multi-hotel and resort complex. It draws inspiration from the heritage of the Polynesian Peoples. Known for their expert navigation across the vast Pacific Ocean, they relied on their intimate knowledge of the stars, wave patterns, and tides to travel among islands.

The sculpture's forms echo the sails of the ancient Polynesian canoe called a Va’a.
The Va'a holds deep cultural and historical significance in Hawaiian and wider Polynesian culture. It symbolizes exploration, ingenuity, and the connection of the Polynesian people with the sea, which is central to their identity. Today, this canoe also symbolizes the revival of Hawaiian culture and traditions.

Placed upon a triangular pool that mirrors the canoe's bow, Voyagers features underwater lights symbolizing the celestial navigational aids used by these early voyagers.

The recent global voyage of the Hokule’a, a modern recreation of such a canoe that sailed around the world, underscores this connection, celebrating Hawaiian culture through its journey. The sculpture Voyagers stands as a tribute to these enduring maritime traditions and their role in Hawaii's cultural renaissance.
