AFTER OCEANIC is the legal entity representing a next-generation, activist-driven studio social practice working among the realms of architecture, landscape, infrastructure, and art.

The studio forms to address the dynamic human geography of urbanism and militarism today.

With a mission to help transform the experiences that drive kuleana toward justice-advancing futures—AFTER OCEANIC maintains an aesthetic and egalitarian vision to advance the recovery of contemporary ahupua‘a systems with a focus that is ecological, economic, and technologic in scope.

From building to ecosystem—material, information, energy, and time are planetary systems humans have evolved to honor and replicate.

The studio of artist-architect Sean Connelly


Project Index

AFTER OCEANIC archives the artistic production of Sean Connelly by means of its economy:

(1) studio-driven work
(2) curated work
(3) collaborative client projects

Collaborative client projects and curated works are generally pioneered with some reference to the outcomes of the artist’s independent studio-driven work.

The artist work identified as studio-driven is conceptually indexed throught the interior theoretical research laboratory HI-ATLAS, which names the space of Sean Connelly's artistic social practice in architecture.

The proto-form of HI-ATLAS, or HAWAII FUTURES is the original chapter withn the artist’s larger theoretical new media anthology. HI-ATLAS is the independently radical academic pursuit of an architectural history of Hawai‘i, or an applied theory of ahupua‘a.
