Life of a Cube #5

Life of a Cube #5

1968
Sculpture, Stone
I have made many studies of the cube. The year 1968 was that of the Red Cube at 140 Broadway in New York City. But I had made small versions in stone before then, from symmetry to asymmetry—also with Akari (light sculptures). The cube is flexible—the Red Cube is a symmetrical rhomboid. The distortions of my stone cubes are more complex.

Quotations by Isamu Noguchi from The Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum (New York: Harry N. Abrams, Inc., 1987), unless otherwise noted. The Noguchi Museum gives thanks to the many talented photographers who have documented Isamu Noguchi’s works, particularly Kevin Noble, who has photographed the Museum’s collection for decades, and Shigeo Anzai and Michio Noguchi, whose portraits of the original Museum installations continue to provide inspiration and insight.
