Jacob Hashimoto / Gas Giant

Jacob-Hashimoto-1-Design-Crush

 

Temporary installations are like a hot and heavy relationship that’s doomed from the start. Fleeting, intense, and short on time. Jacob Hashimoto‘s Gas Giant was installed at MOCA Pacific Design Center. Over 25 days Hashimoto worked with an installation crew to suspend 30,000 paper kites from the gallery ceiling. MOCAtv captured the process, spanning the first day of installation to the three day deinstallation process.
