Tom Sachs / Noguchi - Lunar Excursion Module Lamp - 2020
NASA is the best funded craft industry in our solar system. The Lunar Excursion Module Lamp combines the work of two artists (Noguchi and Sachs) for whom cottage-industrial design, seat-of-the-pants engineering, and the co-option of mass producing systems for artmaking are important techniques.
Sachs’ incorporation of Noguchi’s Akari XP1 - The most succinct statement of Noguchi’s aspirations for light sculpture: biomorphic, asymmetric, freeform -suggests one possible future path for the development of spacecraft. Akari, not coincidentally, already shares a lot in common structurally with aerospace engineering: lightweight skins stretched over strong, resilient lightweight frames.”
