AFTEROCEANIC (AO) is an artist-based design entity, with projects active in the realms of architecture, environmental history, planning, public health, and biocultural restoration. As a nimble and adaptive practice, Afteroceanic works strategically with observation, form-making, creative speculation, and radical spatial communication. Afteroceanic positions and supports grassroots entities, institutions, and organizations to address the complex and healing potentials emergent in the design and development of physical space—the built environment.

Established in Honolulu, Hawai‘i in 2010, Afteroceanic, Inc. grew from a mission to acknowledge, recover, and protect the indigeneity of human geographies amid evolving understandings of history and community interaction. We provide technical assistance and design services for those requiring local evolved expertise in a range of industrial markets including: architectural design, land use analysis, master planning; data analysis and visualization; 3D modeling and diagramming; installation and creative direction; community engagement and organizing; curriculum design and development; and more. Our scopes for proposals are flexible and tailored to empower collaborators.

Consuelo Foundation Hawai‘i State Child Abuse and Neglect 1992-2016 Mapping Study
Scope: Strategic planning, Data Analysis, Spatial Modeling.

Afteroceanic regularly works with Consuelo Foundation toward their mission to prevent and treat abuse, neglect and exploitation of children, women and families in the Philippines and in Hawai‘i. For this mapping study, the Hawaii Revised Statutes (HRS) Chapter 350 defines child abuse and neglect and assigns the Department of Human Service to receive and investigate reports of child abuse and neglect and to maintain a central registry of reported child abuse and neglect cases. Afteroceanic designed and directed the creation of the novel zip code level dataset combined with geospatial infographics to better understand health and abuse across the Hawaiian Islands.

Healthcare Association of Hawai‘i Community Health Needs Assessment Spatial Mapping
Scope: Research & Analysis, Community Engagement, Spatial Modeling.

Featuring excerpts of the artist’s concept Hawai‘i Health Atlas, Afteroceanic provided innovative graphics from the atlas to help produce the Hawaii Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) Report required by the IRS for all U.S. private nonprofit hospitals to conduct every three years. The Healthcare Association of Hawai‘i consolidates reporting for the State of Hawai‘i to identify significant health needs in the community, based upon the input of key stakeholders and community members, available research, and other data points.
