216 Beach Walk, Waikiki

Research output: Non-textual formDigital or Visual Products

Abstract

30-minute practice-as-research film that looks at the idea of Hawaii as a uniquely American site of pleasure that quickly found currency following the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy in 1893 by a group of white businessmen and U.S. Marines. The project considers the islands’ colonized legacy in relation to Honolulu’s tourism epicentre, Waikiki, as a post-traumatic site.
