Noguchi was first and foremost considered a sculpture but had a preoccupation with play. A lot of his designs were not commissioned to be made as they were deemed to un safe but I really like the way he manipulates the landscape to create his playgrounds - His models out of plaster are good ways of describing his ideas too - Maybe we could make our scale models in a similar way so they have a fluidity?

Never Ending Slide
'And for cleaning this slide, a cleaning staff covered in clothes which look like a mop, can slide down while turning. I hope it will become some sort of fun performance.'
