This print consists of a series of horizontal bands that are made up of a variety of patterns, from grids to dots. The colors used are black, dark and light orange, yellow, pink, tan, white, blue, and red. At the base of the print, there is text in tan that reads: "The theory of relativity, may certainly be a true description of the facts concerned, even though the theory a theory which took such liberties fully, with the help of what is nothing but a host of metaphors taken from the languages of physics, of biology, and of social life, works out / their categorical structure, and only recasts what has formed concentric circles, surrounded by smaller orbs of the same space; then again a vertical band filled with horizontal strokes; and lastly, two vertical bands of concentric circles". The print is signed and numbered (l.r.) "Eduardo Paolozzi A.P 7".

Several thin coats of blue-gray acrylic paint have been applied to primed linen canvas whose weave was altered by removing threads at more or less regular intervals. She then carefully sanded down the paint to highlight the new texture and make &ldquo;visible the life within the linen material.&rdquo; (artist&rsquo;s statement (2009), http://www.eddarenouf.com/Statement.html)
