Abstract
Along the Oahu highway-one, near Electric Beach on the far west side of the island, lies acres of vibrant farmland. This land is used to produce a variety of vegetables for consumption by the surrounding communities. Recently an addition to the fields has appeared as a series of oddly shaped cement forms perfectly aligned (fig. 1). They appear to be gigantic proportionally to the crops. The forms are the pylon style infrastructure of the Honolulu high-capacity transit corridor project. The pylons are made by casting cement into molds, a process commonly used by contemporary sculptors. Examination of the pylon reveals a figurative quality hidden within its sleek engineered surface. The figure combined with the imagery of the Honolulu high-capacity transit corridor project pylon became the focus of Abi Good's thesis exhibition, Idle Dilemma. In making the figure visible in the context of the Honolulu high-capacity transit corridor project pylons, Good reveals the deeper social implications of the city's project.
