This print has a large grid pattern where the lines are colored in with yellow and blue, with green at the intersections, and outlined in thick black lines. In between the colored grid is solid white. The grid is distorted as to suggest a recession into space to the upper right. In the lower portion of the print, there are a series of small objects outlined in white. One of those objects has a red tip and resembles a match.
