Now Reading: Jacob Hashimoto’s Ephemeral Installations
Written 6 years ago by
Jacob Hashimoto‘s ephemeral installations, often done in an overall soft white hue and constructed from light rice paper, intend to simulate nature. This is showcased in two of his site-specific installations—Superabundant Atmosphere and Silence Still Governs Our Consciousness—where the New York-based artist uses hundreds of small bamboo and paper kite-like elements strung together in chains , creating a densely layered and fragmented tapestry of image or pattern.
As stated on his website: “While the individual components remain more or less abstract, overall, clusters of pattern, stripes, or waves of color are formed, giving the works a pictorial quality that suggests organic forms, vistas, scrolling video games, or even board games… entrancing the viewer with their continuously shifting illusion of light, space, motion, and sense of flight.”
