Jacob Hashimoto is known to work with bamboo and paper, taking cues from his Japanese heritage. His sculptural installations repurpose the materials traditionally exhibited in Japanese screen paintings in a new and airy way. He also adds an interactive element to his works that elevate their appeal. 

Armada is Hashimoto’s installation of 700 to 800 suspended wooden sailboats that bob along an invisible ocean. Like a marionette, each sailboat hangs as an attachment to a larger entity, reacting to tugs or movement of its extended limb. Held up by nylon string attached to a mobile mechanism, up top, there is a calming floating motion generated by the mechanical movement of the structure from above.
