To the right of these scenes, at the top is a Mondrian-type image and below it are a series of circuits. At the bottom, there is a photograph of two small children playing with blow-up toys in a blow-up swimming pool.

This print has a black background with seven gears of various sizes floating in the blackness. There are three softer greyish ones clustered togther at top of print, three shiny ones on the bottom. Both of these clusters have their gear teeth on the exterior circumference. The last large gear in the center has the gear teeth on the interior of the circumference. There is a golden yellow object within the center gear; and the word "DANCER" is near top of print where the "C" intercepts the large gear, making it possible to read it as "Danger."
