Artist's book by Sondheim. Discusses the process of working on the piece "General Description of the World," which involved collecting images of a beach in Nova Scotia at both micro- and macroscopic levels (from a plane and under an actual microscope). Explains the theoretical basis of the project, derived from the work of Merleau-Ponty, Piaget, Levi-Strauss, and Chomsky, among other authors.
