"One day I had a vision: I saw the Earth as sculpture." In this program, Isamu Noguchi speaks through archival film and audio recordings about sculpting space by using sculpture to redefine its own setting and by reshaping the landscape itself into a vast work of art. Noguchi biographer Dore Ashton and others who knew Noguchi provide insights into his life and personality. Landmarks such as the UNESCO gardens, Bayfront Park, the Expo ’70 fountains, Black Slide Mantra, the Billy Rose Sculpture Garden, Moere Numa Park, and the artist’s home in Mure, Japan, are featured, as are Water Stone, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the stage sets he designed for Martha Graham.
