Armada is Hashimoto's installation of 700 to 800 suspended wooden sailboats that bob along an invisible ocean. Like a marionette, each sailboat hangs as an attachment to a larger entity, reacting to tugs or movement of its extended limb. Held up by nylon string attached to a mobile mechanism, up top, there is a calming floating motion generated by the mechanical movement of the structure from above.

that captures the relaxing sailing motion.
