This album was created in celebration of the exhibition "Akari: Sculpture by Other Means" at The Noguchi Museum in New York City. While the album stands alone as a work, it is meant to be listened to in the exhibit: recordings of tapping, opening and closing, and rubbing the washi paper, bamboo, and wire of the lanterns evoke the feeling of being inside the light sculptures, or perhaps overhearing their conversations.
