“An experimental action, generated by a mind as empty as it was before it became one...sees things directly as they are: impermanently involved in an infinite play of interpenetrations.” -John Cage

Merce Cunningham performs STILLNESS... (six performances, six films) 2008
As part of #Portrait by Tacita Dean @nationalportraitgallery the film installation is a moving masterpiece.
Merce Cunningham (1919-2009) performs STILLNESS to his life-partner and collaborator John Cage’s seminal 1952 composition 4’33”. Filmed in Cunningham’s dance studio in New York, the different screens present a live-size Cunningham. As you walk into the room and cross the path of a projector’s light beam, you find your shadow standing next to Cunningham’s seated ageing figure. You are dancing in the room with a man who transformed and defined modern dance and art through movement. Ageing seems cruel but Cunningham’s reach goes beyond stillness and silence.
If 4’33” is a musical composition dedicated to silence and sound environment, STILLNESS is the ultimate ode to dance and a love letter to John Cage. Tacita Dean is the only film maker to portray it.

It’s another #WisdomWednesday! John Cage advises us to be forward thinkers—“I can’t understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I’m frightened of the old ones.” Have a great rest of your week #booklovers! #oldideas #newideas #johncage #wisdom #wednesday #dontbescared #bnvancouver #bnpnw #bnpdx #vancouver #vancouverwa #vancouverwashington #vancouverusa #vanwa

Never really pay attention to the garden unless it’s blooming so am looking a bit more closely lately. Practicing allowing the images to enter my eyes instead of pushing my “knowledge” on top of what is there. As #johncage said, “I am trying to be unfamiliar with what I’m doing.” #somar #freshness #directperception #thismoment #mindfulness #metta #meditation #reality

Anche le stelle suonano! #JohnCage #EtudesAustrales

Live video of performance from our recent project: a poetic transition from the conceptual silence of John Cage’s 4’33” (1952) to Arvo Pärt’s new aesthetic “Tintinabulli” (little bells) born in his Für Alina (1976). Here performed by Annie Yim, accompanied by the recorded voice of poet Zaffar Kunial’s new work in response - “Sunlight’”. #darknesstolight

“You construct qualities that can be said, and you leave out the ones that can't be said but are always the most important.” First time seeing an abstract series in the flesh by my favorite artist of all time, and I thought I got chills just from staring at it but turns out I got a fever afterwards so I’m not sure which is responsible now😅
