This small catalogue was published on the occassion of the 1978 exhibition Peter Roehr: Work 1962-1968. Roehr, who died aged 24 in 1968, left a body of work consisting of more than 600 pieces, created over a five year period.
Roehr chose to model his system of order after the second law of thermodynamics, which states that all systems tend to come to rest when energy is equally distributed. He attached great importance to the idea of simple, precise, unpretentious serialisation, the influence of which came from Zen Buddhism.
