Event Photos: Gallery for ECHO Residency at Bishop Museum (Honolulu, Hawaii)
Return to Gallery Start Slideshow Stop Slideshow Previous Next

The work Cortada developed aimed at engaging Hawaiians in present-day actions that would have a direct effect in preserving coral. Through this Hawaii-specific participatory eco-art project, the Bishop Museum would teach local students across the various islands about climate change and encourage them to engage in actions that would lower their carbon foot print. Through the art-making process, each student is encouraged to develop their own eco-action to help reduce green house gases, reduce ocean acidification, and in so doing help Hawaii's coral reefs grow. Each participant and their action is represented by a polyp that is added to the three banners Cortada created for the museum (using color, students will write their name or initials and/or eco-actions inside the circles/polyps). http://www.xaviercortada.com/event/2010Bishop
