Since the mid-1950s, Latham's work has addressed the need for a single theory capable of explaining the universe. Bridging scientific, philosophical and artistic ideas, Latham proposes a time-based explanation of reality, a theory he calls 'Event Structure'. This argues that all things that exist can be thought of as 'events' of different duration. According to Latham, the form and structure of things are explicable only in relation to time. This concept is demonstrated in P(n)2:3/12. The painting is the result of spraying parts of the canvas with paint for a definite period.
