This was an artwork that had developed in three quite separate ways.
First an original accidental imprint had been made some years earlier
in a muddy creek of the east coast of England. Then there was the spectacle
and performance of making the print in the museum, broadcast on international
television. And finally there was the aftermath, in which the print
had become a silent part of the museum’s collection – begging
the question of the visitor of what had made it – obvious only
that it must have come from above.
