This title contains an essay introducing his theory
of the "Least Event" and the notion
of a "pre-literate, formal graphic procedure
which was seen to be a 'language which copied Nature'."

Artist John Latham's aesthetic theories,
developed over two decades, are based
on an interpretation of time, space, and events.
