If you have visited the High Line this month, you may have noticed a new video projection in the semi-enclosed passageway on the High Line at West 14th Street.
The work is called One11 and 103, and it is a film-and-sound composition by John Cage – the legendary composer, writer, and artist. This year marks the 100th anniversary of his birth, and to commemorate the artist, High Line Art has partnered with Electronic Arts Intermix, the Chelsea-based nonprofit media arts center, to present his work at the High Line.
Cage’s instrumental compositions had a profound impact on post-war Western music. Follow us after the jump to learn more.
