In 1961 Ascott became interested in cybernetic theory and adopted cybernetic approaches into his formulation of the Ground course at Ealing College of Art (1961–4). For Ascott, cybernetics represented a process of communication and behaviour from which observations of the world could be made. Here, the combination of multiple possibilities achieved by the interrelation of the panels and solid wooden elements, combined with a transparent moveable central panel, allows the work to be created by the viewer whose interaction brings the object into being.
