DRINKING PIECE FOR ORCHESTRA (1963)

Imagine letting a goldfish swim across
the sky.
Let it swim from the West to the East.
Drink a liter of water.
Imagine letting a goldfish swim across
the sky.
Let it swim from the East to the West.

1963 spring


Instruction originally published in Yoko Ono’s Grapefruit, 1964.

  1. I imagine diving into the ocean and swimming underwater to the bottom from north to south.
    When I reach the bottom of the ocean I take an air capsule and return to the surface from south to north.

    Now I am just in time to listen to a string quartet perform George Frederick Handel’s ‘Air’ from “Water Music”.

One thousand needles: imagine threading them with a straight thread.
