John Cage's Eninka #35

I find this piece by John Cage to be quite interesting.  This piece looks almost as if he took paper and cut pieces of it up and burned the edges of the pieces of paper.  It almost reminds me of the paper that is used to create scrolls as well.  It looks as if it has that same texture and same darkened edges.  Another item this reminds me of is a map.  It looks as if there would be countries/islands represented by the paper and the white negative spaces being water.  This piece of work helps us to really think about what we see than what is actually presented before us and use our imagination to see.
