    Happy 100th Birthday to John Cage!

There is no such thing as an empty space or an empty time. There is always something to see, something to hear. In fact, try as we may to make a silence, we cannot. - John Cage

Pictured: Robert Rauschenberg’s White Paintings (1951), which influenced Cage’s seminal silent composition, 4’33”. See Robert Rauschenberg pay tribute to John Cage here.
