Alvin Hollingsworth planned to show these multimedia works in a 1977 Allan Stone Gallery exhibition. Although he had a solo show of multimedia work with collage in 1965 at Terry Dintenfass Gallery, this was his first abstract series. In his Space, Time, Infinity series, he also incorporated pieces of slate and old keys he had purchased at a flea market in Paris with many different materials that reflect the elements and the passage of time.
