Jacob Hashimoto’s “Gas Giant”

Hey, this post is going to be few words because the pictures are going to speak for themselves.

Did you know there was a MOCA exhibit in Beverly Hills? On Melrose to be more precise? Because I sure didn’t until I discovered this exhibit. This exhibit will just take your breath away. Hand made kites, hung up by a sting…I can’t imagine the time it took to create this.

Downstairs is all black and white, then you go up the stairs and *bam* the most spectacular vision. Even if you aren’t a museum nerd like I am, you will have the appreciate for the patience and vision Mr. Hashimoto had to create this masterpiece.

If I’m correct, this is a permanent exhibit? But don’t quote me on that. This is the MOCA at the PDC Art Catalogues, be sure to check their sight to make sure you see it in person! Until next time, I hope you all have a great day!

Stanley Kubrick

Oh LACMA. How I love thee.

My friend Melissa came up here today to check out FIDM. She’s always wanted to check out LACMA so I told her I’d take her (plus I read about the Stanley Kubrick exhibit and I knew I had to go).

I have a confession, after walking through this exhibit, I realized that I’ve never seen any of Stanley Kubrick’s movie but wow, this exhibit is amazing. You don’t need to be a fan of his movies to appreciate the creative thought process that went into producing these films. Taking a book, turning it into a script and filming it with such precision…such an imagination.

I’m a bit of a wimp when it comes to scary movie, might be why I haven’t seen any of his movies. The Shining, Clockwork Orange, Full Metal Jacket…I may have nightmare for days. Nevertheless, I had a great time checking out this exhibit and even more because I had my best friend up here.
