John Cage at Work is composed of vintage video clips (all shot by Kathan Brown) of John Cage at work in the Crown Point studio. It begins with Cage’s first project there, in 1978, and ends with his last one in 1992, the year he died. The film is separated into four parts, and each part is named for a material Cage used as a starting point, and each part focuses on the making of a series of prints.
John Cage’s approach to music, writing, visual art, and life was of-a-piece, and in this film he demonstrates that approach, and describes it in his own voice. ( DVD format, 45 min)
