“The harshness of electricity is transformed through the magic of paper back to the light of our origin, the sun, so that its warmth may continue to fill our rooms at night.

Obsessed with being surrounded by lanterns at the Akari Light Sculpture exhibit at the Noguchi Museum.

Ticked off a few things I wanted to achieve this week before the school holidays start, including a little freshen up downstairs ✔️

Isamu Noguchi, Akari lamps - L1, 1976: “Akari means light in Japanese, its written ideograph the sun and the moon. In oldest days, it was customary to say “bring an Akari”, just as we would say “bring a light”. Akari suggest also lightness in the same way as light does. This is why I named my lanterns Akari.
Akari are light in weight, they bring lightness and light together, but what is of even greater significance to me is the quality of light they shed. Due to the paper (handmade) there is a human warmth which we miss in our too perfect human materials. It is as if, though the candles have gone, still the spirit of the flickering flame remains bedded in the warmth texture of paper, bamboo and Wa. As a foil to our harsh mechanized existence, they recall an older, quieter time to relax us.” #akarilightsculpture #lamp #sculpture #light #lightness #noguchi #nyc #design #art #akari #akariunfolded @noguchimuseum

I’ve lived super close to the Noguchi Museum for almost 4 years now and didn’t even know it existed until like a month ago. Astoria, you never cease to surprise me.

Sculpture by other means | Isamu Noguchi, Akari lamps - 125F,1971 and 15A,1983.
« The quality of Akari is very much related to the materials of its origin: “washi”, the hand-made paper from the inner bark of the mulberry tree, so superb for the purpose of transmitting light, and “Higo”, the bamboo ribbing, which can be bent and shaped in numerous ways.
For me, function was only an initial consideration; my main purpose has always been art as it relates to life. I work with the gamut of possibilities. Inherent in Akari are lightness and fragility. They seem to offer a magical unfolding away from the material world”. #akarilightsculpture #akariunfolded #akari #isamunoguchi #noguchi #nyc #lamp #sculpture #art #light @noguchimuseum #gifu #washi #higo #design
