Lotus In Bloom

Wandering through Hawaii's rich, diverse forests...

Recreating Speakers

Prototyping Hand-crafted Tools

Who we are:

Two curious individuals with a passion for making small changes in Honolulu, Hawaii

Goal:

Perpetuation of sustainability from the state level, down to the personal level. What baby steps we will take to integrate eco-consciousness to our everyday lives

Project:

Making a Cat-Bunny speaker, from scratch, with bamboo & rice. The sounds are generated by Maki, the bunny, through recordings of cats (neko). The Cat-Bunny speaker will also respond physically to pets and scratches.

Concept:
Exploring natural materials found within Hawaii through our fun and playful attitude towards electronics and mixed sounds of the internet culture.
