Armada is the latest exhibition by Jacob Hashimoto currently at Studio La Città in Verona. Hashimoto frequently uses acrylic, paper, bamboo, and nylon to create densely layered installations of translucent discs and other geometric shapes that are mounted on walls. Some of his much larger works fill entire gallery rooms or ceiling spaces. Unique to this exhibition he installed a large-scale kinetic sculpture of suspended sailboats affixed to three gently rolling lever mechanisms that cause the ships to roll gently along invisible waves. I hope dearly somebody shoots a video of this in action. (via wowgreat)
