Spatial Poem No. 4

View through Harvard Museums
This edition contains the documentation of Shiomi's "Shadow Event", in which participants were instructed to "project the shadow of the letters S H A D O W of the enclosed film." The documentation was then (fittingly) editioned on microfilm with a small plastic hand viewer by Maciunas. Although Shiomi created nine "Spatial Poems", only the first four were published as Fluxus editions.
