The Jungle

This work examines notions of seriality and iteration, exploring linear and non-linear narratives through calm unvarying repetition. These images are of the transformation of the East Waikiki neighborhood formerly known as “The Jungle” due to gross overcrowding and substandard living conditions. They utilize the changing light in a 24-hour period as a visual catalog, creating a taxonomy that suggests the implicit politics connecting past and present. The repetition in these images reveal the significance of serial structure as their fundamental formal feature.
