Founder of 88 Block Walks Adele Balderston, commissioned the designing of a silent portable projection system to display archive images of Kaka'ako throughout the streets of the Kaka'ako area on board a library cart. The solution was to assemble a power supply composed of 2 deep cycle batteries run in a parallel configuration and transform the current with a pure sine wave inverter. Creating a rack and bolt mount system on the library cart.

The Living Archive is a walking tour and multimedia experience that connects Kaka'ako, the dynamic and controversial neighborhood we know today, to its past through personal narratives collected between the 1920s and 1970s.
