Miami-based artist Augusto Esquivel realistically duplicates objects by suspending thousands of sewing buttons on mere strings. Each strand of his incredible sculptural pieces work with their adjacent string of buttons to create colorful replicas of everything, from a basic geometric cube to a stone fountain covered in flowers and spouting water.
The Other Sun, Jacob Hashimoto - Hashimoto works using traditional kite-making techniques on a grand scale from his studio in Brooklyn. Small kite elements are handmade from paper and adhered onto a bamboo frame. During the installation process, Hashimoto strings these kites together suspending them between parallel dowels to form fragmented and layered fields, creating distinctive, interactive compositions. http://jacobhashimoto.com/
