VISUALLY LOVELY {11}

Last month I made the trek to MOCA at the Pacific Design Center to see the amazing exhibit by Jacob Hashimoto. Even though the space is small, his installation made up of tiny handmade kits made the space feel huge.

When you first walk in you see a cluster of black, white and grey kits. Some tangled together and others creating these beautiful patterns.

When you walk up the stairs to the main room, you are instantly taken a back by the pure scale of it all. He created a beautiful landscape of rolling clouds, the sun and even water. At some angles the kits created these crazy pixelated images, which sort of messed with my mind. I even had a sudden moment that I felt like I was floating.

I even loved the blocks of patterned kits.

I am so happy I made it out for this exhibit. It was truly inspiring.

Tumblr has become a hub of great imagery  It’s sort of like Pinterest, but carefully curated. I decided to take a few hours and click around different sites I follow and discover some new ones. It definitely supplies me with some much needed inspiration and visual eye candy.

Last weekend I visited MOCA with some friends and saw a fantastic exhibit from Urs Fischer. This was such a great exhibit. I loved that all the walls dividing each room were cut out, which created different vantage points from room to room. His sculptures have such life, I especially loved the street lamp.

Not only was this exhibit in the MOCA on Grand it also continued into the MOCA in Little Tokyo. This exhibit housed thousands (probably even more) of clay sculptures. The story behind this exhibit was he invited over a thousand artists to come and just created sculptures. There is so much stuff everywhere, it was a little creepy. Hands down the show stopper was this beautiful marble sculpture but it really wasn’t marble they were wax. This sculpture is one giant candle, and throughout the exhibit it is lite up creating these beautiful wax drippings. Pieces also begin to fall and crumble to the ground. I have never seen anything like that, it was a really inspiring show. I highly recommend checking it out.
