also displayed:
Full Stop       (1961)

Described by the Independent in 2005 as a "huge black painted circle that represents an event and its unknowable circumstances", the picture displayed is an enlarged photo of 'Full Stop" by John Latham, with a black line that incidentally occurs at the bottom of the page, found during research.

The punctuation implied by the title: 'Full Stop' suggests syncopation in terms of event: of a temporal score, and draws on the event-like quality of the diagrams, existing itself in a condition, possibly, as phenomena.
