Stones and PaperStreaming Video - 2005
This program is a timeless retrospective on the life and career of Isamu Noguchi, whose binational heritage sent him back and forth between Japan and America seeking a new artistic synthesis. He started his career in Paris as Constantin Brancusi's apprentice. He made his name in New York. And, after World War II, he brought a fresh modernist wind to Japan, putting his mark on Japanese ceramics, gardens, and paper lanterns. His late masterworks-rough stone monoliths that echo both Brancusi and the Zen garden of Ryoanji-marry East and West in an absolutely original way.
