New York: the artist, 1966-1971 [Melbourne: the artist, 2008]. Folio, commercial binder folder, thirteen leaves offset printed of geometric statements which articulate the design of an object. Produced in a small unspecified edition.

An experimental piece where the artist mathematically describes a physical object. An unfinished work 1966 – 1971 was originally exhibited at the Whitney Museum Artists Resource Centre, New York, and A Space Gallery, Toronto, as part of an installation. It was intended as an edition of 100 copies, although far fewer were produced, they were given away to visitors to allow them to own a piece of the installation, if they so chose. This is one of five copies Jacks made in 2008 recreating the original in a very low edition.
