The In 1962, John Cage first visited the small, sparse rock and sand garden Ryoan-ji (Peaceful Dragon) in Kyoto. It was by all accounts a profound experience, and he carried away with him more than just a memory of a quiet, contemplative afternoon. If an experience truly transforms an individual, it becomes an idea, which we carry around with us. This idea is now a place – a point of reference – we may revisit at any time. Cage may have thought about Ryoan-ji often; in 1983, he applied an action to his idea. — Art Lange
