Isamu Noguchi, Archaic/Modern brings together more than eighty works from six decades, which reveal how the ancient world shaped this inspirational artistโ€™s vision for the future. Monolithic basalt sculptures and floating Akari ceiling lights are juxtaposed with works that use stone, water, and light to consider fundamental structures in civilization across time. Noguchi saw himself as an equal parts artist and engineer, and this volume devotes special attention to his patented designs, such as Radio Nurseโ€”the first baby monitor, and also includes his designs for stage sets, playgrounds, and useful articles, many of which are still being produced today.
