Stepping into the MOCA Pacific Design Center 'Gas Giant' exhibit will feel like walking straight into a 3D painting. Although that might only feel possible in the world of Harry Potter, Japanese-American artist Jacob Hashimoto, who is based in New York City, managed to achieve such a feat with the help of countless paper kites that act like the dots in a Pointillist painting.

His first solo show in Los Angeles, California, the MOCA Pacific Design Center 'Gas Giant' exhibit was previously shown in Venice, Italy, last year as well as Chicago, Illinois, the year before. Momentously immersive, this exhibit will be his last. For those lucky enough to be in the vicinity, the surreal sculptural installation is a must-see.
