Combining traditional kite-making techniques and collage into sculptural environments, Jacob Hashimoto (b. 1973, Greeley, Colorado) creates massive space-altering installations with thousands of thin paper sheets. Gas Giant was exhibited in Venice, Italy, in 2013 at Fondazione Querini Stampalia and in Chicago in 2012 at Rhona Hoffman Gallery. In its third and final edition at MOCA Pacific Design Center, Gas Giant begins its voyage subverting the grid of the white cube on the first floor by tangling the black and white elements of the installation while directing the viewer to the second floor, where an open, atmospheric, and colorful emphasis on the verticality of the space is the climax of the piece.
