Traveling to each location on the map, he painted or made of rocks, yarn, flower seed, wood, etc., a large corresponding letter on the landscape. Photo Documents of these letter sites mounted in a row, spelled back to the viewer the word California on the map.] – Example of Self-referring model (things or events that talk to or reference themselves) from Allan Kaprow’s The Education of the Un-Artist, Part III, 1974
