Weston Teruya (AIR ’22) creates sculpture, video, and drawing—independently and in collaboration with others—that examine the social dynamics and histories of specific sites and communities. Past projects have featured paper replications of mundane objects, many with ties to Hawaiian or Asian-Pacific Islander cultural practices or to narratives of displacement. 

In the Project Space, Weston will be embarking on a new body of work exploring islands, and the ocean and air between them. Drawing on readings, film, archival research, material experimentation, and his own family history, Teruya proposes islands—in history and speculative fiction—as sites of anti-imperial resistance, cross-cultural traffic, environmental richness and tumult, and bearers of embedded and living memory.
