Gravity Defying Paper Tapestries Jacob Hashimoto

Jacob Hashimoto has taken a deeper approach to the Japanese tradition of kite-making. Drawing on his heritage, Hashimoto creates three-dimensional structures made out of thousands of miniature kites. The installations form cascading shapes that appear to float in mid air.

When the kites are assembled on an intricate network of thread, they evoke a feeling of stillness and weightlessness like gravity defying paper tapestries.
