As we look at the artist's series of pieces from 1968, the sculptures at first seem a group of easily identifiable figures: a trap, a bow and arrow, a sundial, a bristle worm. No great surprise occurs when approaching one of these objects and walking around it, as would be the case with contemporaneous American sculpture by Donald Judd or Eva Hesse, where different perspectives and changing qualities of reflected and absorbed light change one's very understanding of the structure.
