Spontaneous decisions in the performance of a work and the possibility of the composed elements being mobile have been of primary interest to me for some time; the former to an extreme degree in FOLIO (1952), and the latter, most explicitly, in TWENTY FIVE PAGES (1953). For me, the concept of the elements being mobile was inspired by the mobiles of Alexander Calder, in which, similar to this work, there are basic units subject to innumerable different relationships or forms. The concept of the work being conducted and formed spontaneously in performance was originally inspired by the action-painting techniques and works of Jackson Pollock in the late 1940s, in which the immediacy and directness of contact with the material is of great importance and produces such an intensity in the working and in the result. The performance conditions of these works are similar to a painter working spontaneously with a given palette.
