MYCOLOGICAL FORAY
with John Cage (1983)

One key event in the evolution of both the conceptual ideas and practical working methods that would become central to future workshops occurred during John Cage's visit to Mountain Lake in 1983. Cage, who had developed a great interest in mushrooms in the 1950s, was one of the founders in 1962 of the New York Mycological Society. Cage's 1983 mycological foray revealed not only how to utilize the resources of the locale, its physical materials such as plants and rocks as well as its customs, but also the resources of the scientific community at Virginia Tech.
