In 1990 Olivier Mosset was invited to make a proposal for Galerie van Gelder Editions. For this he made use of a George Maciunas edition from the sixties: Flux Dots by Olivier Mosset Total Art Nice, a little plastic box filled with home discs referring to the circle paintings of Mosset, as Maciunas once explained to Olivier Mosset. Mosset liked the idea of shuffling up the red confetti every time before a colour photo would be taken. Hence a series of unique works was eventually realised based on Maciunas’ box.

Added information:
On 7th of June in 2023 a particular lot was auctioned at Auction house Metayer Merdoz in Paris. In some way four prints out of this series were put together into a square and offered, apparently as a work in itself.
