The exhibit, I dreamt of flying, depicts the fascination that Noguchi has with outer space. This exhibit gives the feeling of being lost in space. I Dreamt of Flying 2 #6, transports you to another world a world detached from our own, leaving the viewer in a dream like state, lost in time. While looking at the series of photographs she takes the viewer on an adventure through her own perspective. Her gallery exhibit’s have a very interesting presentation in an all black gallery she illuminates her work by spotlighting the photos keeping them the focus. This concept works very well because the majority of the photos are very bright in theme. This type of presentation gives a dramatic effect which definitely is an attention grabber.
Noguchi’s work has often been seen as pure and hauntingly romantic, almost as if it is from a fairytale. In Noguchi’s works it is obvious that she has a talent for using subjects that are not conventionally beautiful and translating them into mesmerizing photographs. I chose this artist base on a powerful connection I had to her photographs. Although I do see the attractiveness of Noguchi’s photos, I'm not convinced of her emotional connection behind them. In an interview of her, she talks about how she just happened into this profession; it was not something that she was passionate about but she just happened to be good at it. From this interview I learned how she felt about her work making me feel misled. I found myself wondering how could her photos give me the feeling of emotional depth but in reality have none at all; or does art have to have any meaning at all to the artist? Despite my views of her, I still feel a strong connection to her work and respect her as an artist.
