< Sticky Exhibition

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 graduate students in a sculpture class. The Class has formed an architecture residency to promote the art of Architectural installation in Honolulu. The participants are: Jandi Quitoriano, Tao Yang, Scott Macri, Jan Erika Sicam, BriAnn Laban, Dorothy Baga, Ann Motonaga, Tessa Pobanz, Howard Shek, Naibin Jiang, Nainoa Cravalho, Graham Hart, Ren Shiroma, Raymond Sze-to, Xu Yang, Mengxi He, Tyler Francisco and Zhou Hongtao.


The exhibit opened on October 9 and will run through November 5, 2013, in the Haigo and Irene Shen Gallery in the University of Hawaii at Mānoa School of Architecture.


The Sticky Installation Exhibit produced by Assistant Professor Hongtao Zhou and architecture graduate students is featured in the 10/14/13 issue of designboom, a popular digital architecture and design magazine.
