With attention to architecture and urbanism, Connelly’s sculptural work All Architects are Bad (2022) probes the triplicate histories of American militarization, urban development, and tourism in Hawai’i. The work’s title references the anti-policing slogan ACAB (“All Cops Are Bastards”) to challenge contemporary spaces that oppress indigenous thinking by channeling humor and joy as insurgent forces. All Architects are Bad speaks to the complex relationship and respect that Native Hawaiians have to their watersheds or Ahupua`a, while positting new methodologies for architectures that advance justice.
