In the late 1960s and early 1970s Nauman worked in a studio in Pasadena. Access was a problem and he made few sculptures, concentrating instead on maquettes and graphic works. This is one of his first lithographs and he has used circular overlapping and radiating lines to explore abstract ideas about space and volume. The idea developed out of an photographic project, where Nauman used a moving light sources to define volume in space.
