Isamu Noguchi, Archaeology, 1966 (cast 1984). Bronze cast of plaster model.


1966 (cast 1984)
This was originally a plaster, made in 1966, which looked like a mold to me. My recollection of doing it remained but I could not figure it out. A cast was made to solve this mystery, whereupon I realized that the mold was the positive. Seemingly a dictionary of ideas, I had once made an archaeology of my past.
