Cobbing called the photocopied print process, "monoduplicator prints." This work and others by Cobbing was exhibited in the Destruction In Art Symposium organized by Gustav Metzger and held in Prince Albert Hall in London in 1966. The event was a precursor to the art movement of Situationism. This work was composed by crumpling overtyped printed texts and printing them in black and white on a monoduplicator device as a single copy. These prints were then collaged onto a raised block of masonite then fixed as a grid onto a painted black panel.
