This view of Automobile Tire Print (1953) showing the ends of the work gathered on scrolls recalls Chinese scroll painting and calligraphic writings. The artist allowed the work to be installed with varying sections visible, either lying on a platform close to the floor, placed in a vitrine, or mounted on the wall.
