Abstract: When I started graduate school I was working with very different artistic problems, all of which seemed to me at the time to be incapable of evolution. I was attracted to geometric abstraction and "conceptual" art. Some of the ideas have remained exciting today and are incorporated in my present work. Still with me from my earlier work is the idea of the object in space, now the human "object". I had tried to approach this problem from a time point of view by making myself or some other person in actuality be the object. (That was in a piece in which two signs would be put on a highway at an arbitrary distance from each other, one saying "begin", and the other, "end".) In some pencil drawings I used semi-discs arranged on a grid. Each unit existed separately and as a part of a configuration of units, that relationship, plus an atmospheric background, implying the space/object relationship. Although these drawings were successful, they were too limited in the desired area (i.e., the exploration of the object in space).
