Akule’s Ball

The Akule’s Ball was commissioned by the Howard Hughes Development Corp. for their South Shore Market in Honolulu. Is a kinetic sculpture inspired by the large schools of fish that the artist Rae Douglass has encountered on his long distance ocean swims at various spots around Oahu. The Akule’s Ball utilizes two of Rae’s inventions: The fish decals utilize an iridescent film developed by Rae to produce the color effects. The structure of the sculpture is made from a matrix designed to convey 3D and motion effects from 2D imagery.
