Following the collective over the course a week, I captured a glimpse of the method and thought that went into a mural that seems to elude a simple summary. Using an application developed by founder Duncan Dempster, the group covered an entire city block in Honolulu, nearly 1,500 feet in length. Made up of images site-specific to the project, the mural pays its respects to the history in the Kaka‘ako neighborhood.
.5ppi (Pronounced Point-Five-P-P-Eye) is a print collective based in Honolulu. Their project located in Honolulu is arguably the largest woodblock print ever made for a single image. Each pixel measures 2 inches in length and width, also the namesake of the group.
