mikado:The original blocks from  TM City were powerless against Amphion's lyre. They flutter through the air, as if freed from gravity. The orthogonal grid is thrown out of whack, the once black avenues are decorated with patterns reminiscent of printer's registration marks and color bars, and lean at  random angles. A giant mikado game irresistibly evoking some of Fröbel's blocks. Earthly constellations paying homage to Aldo Van Eyck's playgrounds. Heavenly gnomons.
