Noguchi Playground

Isamu Noguchi's proposal from 1952 for a playground in the UN's New York headquarters. Didn't pass for vintage health & safety reasons. Posting it because thinking a lot about simple vocabulary and shift, nuance in quite primary forms.

First conscious of his work from the exhibition at, on recall, the Design Museum. Most memorable were the sets and props for Martha Graham.

Which in turns reminds me of Claire Barclay; her recent installation at Camden Arts Centre had amazing craft-presence and composition.
