I'd like to know...




Today is Monday, so that means it's time for I'd like to know, a weekly post dedicated to talented artists, designers, musicians, etc...all people I'd like to know and who I thought you may like to know of too. This week I'd like to know...Jacob Hashimoto. I first heard about his work via Dear Ada and I totally love the obsessive quality of it all. You can see more of his work here. Three cheers for obsessive art!!!

I had only seen his small work at Art Basel in Miami in 2006, and even his little constructions stuck in my head. Thank you for sharing his larger pieces with us-I love love the artists who labor and obsess and build their own universes, especially when what most of what's done all day floats in computer ether-

Obsessional art! I thought you might like this link to an artist I heard about at the Louise Nevelson show at the de young. Jean Shin who makes found object installations. Pretty cool, especially the umbrellas and lottery cards. The commentary seems pretty intelligent too, not just conceptual art speak.

Wow, thanks for posting this. It's the perfect example of installation format I hope people will add to when they get to play with paper in the studio. This work makes my heart race!

i love this artwork. when i first saw it i broke out the wax paper and dental floss and tried to make a little 3-d scene. it is hard to work with - and it's minty! i put it away till i have more time set aside to experiment. your post reminded me to get to it!

AND i recognized the gus the friendly ghost pic right away. i had the one with a baby ghost that would cry...

i clicked over via sf girl and i just love your blog and your artwork and your collections. i will visit often!

ps - i was so obsessed with library cards as a kid i made pockets and cards for all of my books, my parents books and my grandparents books. i loved shuffling those cards in and out of the pockets so official like. i know....weirdo!
