Maika’i Tubbs from Mike Orbito on Vimeo.

Videographer Mike Orbito takes you into the home of sculptor Maika‘i Tubbs to see how he transforms throw away items like plastic forks and spoons, plastic bags and Styrofoam containers into intricately beautiful creations. “There’s something about repetition that I’m really fascinated with, doing the same thing over and over again, but doing the same thing over and over again to get a different result,” he says of his process. “ Tubbs is currently in Canada for a three-month residency. His work will be featured from February 9 to April 22 in The Contemporary Museum’s Hawai‘i Art Now, a looking back of the past nine years from the Biennial of Hawai‘i Artists.
