The Hawai Chakki Project
Numaish Karachi was an exhibition of over two dozen installations which aimed to open up public spaces for cultural production. It was organized by the social awareness campaign, ‘I Am Karachi’ to promote science education and cultural activities. The first of four public exhibitions was held at Frere Hall in April, 2015.
Habib University‘s School of Science & Engineering’s faculty and students were responsible for a few of the installations at the exhibition. Among them was the ‘Hawaii Chakki’, or windmill, which harnesses wind energy to produce electrical energy.
