About This Project

This project was done in partnership with the Tokyo Midtown Koinobori Project, an annual international exhibition of koinobori, (traditional Japanese fish flags) to celebrate Children’s Day. The Tokyo Midtown Koinobori Project’s theme this year was “a wish for the healthy growth of children.” My koinobori, which depicts the traditional cultivation of kalo (taro), is inspired by the Hawaiian proverb “He keiki aloha nā mea kanu,” meaning “beloved children are the plants. This saying emphasizes the importance of children in Hawaiian culture, as it parallels the care, nourishment, and healthy environment required for both children and plants to thrive.
