Transcendients: Immigrant Stories of Place is a community-driven traveling art exhibit by Terasaki Exhibitions. The contemporary pop-up exhibit showcases the unique immigrant communities and immigration history of Honolulu through technology-based storytelling, contemporary portraiture, and immersive experiences.
As a visitor travels through the larger-than-life public installation, they will be immersed in various immigrant experiences. One portion of the installation will feature community-submitted portraits of immigrants printed on overhead “light forms” as well as projected on ceiling-high walls of vapor. Driving home the point that we are a nation of immigrants, an interactive structure will encourage community participation with staff live-photographing portraits then projecting visitor portraits onto vapor and/or screens in real-time. In a third portion, stories of immigrants will be given voice through and immersive soundscape.
