In 1990 Olivier Mosset conceptualised a multiple to be published by Galerie van Gelder Editions. He proposed to make use of George Maciunas edition from the sixties: Flux Dots by Olivier Mosset Total Art Nice, a little plastic box owned by gallerist KvG. Mosset liked the idea to shuffle up the content of that box filled with red confetti every time before a colour photo would be taken. Hence a series of unique works was eventually realised based on Maciunas’ box.
