A series of works in which identical quantities of identical materials were divided between each half of a book-like case. On the right-hand side, each panel is a pure pigment mixed with resin; on the left-hand side, all the pigments used on the right are mixed together. Across the seven works there was an attempt to maintain a fairly constant grey, the chromatic key of which was given by titanium white and lamp black. The grey and grey is powdered carborundum. The surface of each panel is a low-relief cast from a sheet of metal. Different surfaces of different metals were used (brushed, mirror-polished, etched). Each surface catches the light differently, hence the apparent tonal contrast in panels which are identically pigmented.

Cast pigmented resin mounted on aluminium, flexible magnets. Aluminium and flexible magnet case.
