by Aaron Britt This month, we're celebrating all things Japanese and modern with our September 2011 issue, Japan Style. And one of the many innovators who gets a bit of special attention this month is the American-born designer Isamu Noguchi. We take you inside the process of how one of his iconic Akari lamps is made in the magazine, but I want to share another of his deft creations: the "settings" for Martha Graham's 1961 film version of the dance "Night Journey." Rarely has "modern" music, dance, and design intersected to such haunting effect.
