Jacob Hashimoto – “Skyfarm Fortress”
Jacob Hashimoto constructed a large scale paper mobile entitled “Skyfarm Fortress” which wowed art aficionados during its stay at the Mary Boone Gallery in New York City. The New York based artist draws on his Japanese heritage to inspire each of his larger-than-life sculptural creations. His work has been on display all over the world. Some of his most popular pieces reside in Venice, Helsinki and Dubai. By piecing together thousands of small paper origami structures – usually kites – Hashimoto replicates the beauty found in nature. The literal lightness to each of his pieces creates an airy and almost ethereal space for audiences.
