Jacob Hashimoto, Armada, 2011

Hashimoto is a name I have been familiar with for quite a while now; I remember seeing Continent back in 2009 at the Saatchi Gallery. Armada was exhibited at the Studio La Città gallery in Verona in 2011. The installation involved a fleet of these adorable little hanging sailing boats, which were attached to a wooden frame that allowed the boats to smoothly roll together, as if floating on gentle waves. I found a video that shows the sculpture in action here.
