John Cage Lecture on Nothing

Content is poetry.  Poetry is a creative act which uses language.  My paintings are a language interpreted through the landscape by looking.(i.)structured in a system of painting (ii) the context (landscape) where the marks are inspired from (pragmatics) and (iii) dependent on their context the content specifity, i.e. its meaning (semantics).Petia’s visualization class

 

Here we are now at the beginning of the fourth large part of this talk.  More and more I have the feeling that we are getting nowhere.  Slowly, as the talk goes on, we are getting nowhere and that is a pleasure.  It is not irritating to be where one is.  It is only irritating to think one would like to be somewhere else.  Here we are now, a little bit after the beginning of the fourth large part of this talk.  More and more we have the feeling that I am getting nowhere.  Slowly, as the talk goes on, slowly, we have the feeling we are getting nowhere.  That is a pleasure which will continue.  If we are irritated, it is not a pleasure.  Nothing is not a pleasure if one is irritated, but suddenly, it is a pleasure, and then more and more it is not irritating (and then more and more and slowly).  Originally we were nowhere; and now, again, we are having the pleasure of being slowly nowhere.  If anybody is sleepy, let him go to sleep.  John cage
