Waves of Knowledge conjures parallels between the flows of knowledge and the currents of the Ocean. It  invites reflection on the stories, inventions and scientific discoveries that have traveled to California from around the Pacific Rim.  Currents of translucent paper flow from the windows, spilling book covers, scientific formulas, faces of authors and artists and  pictures of inventions into the library. Concepts and biographic entries in different languages and scripts spread across the floor like flotsam thrown up on the beach. The installation invites viewers to imagine how these and so many other ideas, creations and inventions were transported from around the Pacific to California  over ocean or radio waves, by internet and in immigrants’ suitcases or imaginations.
