Among the themes explore d are the establishment of new definitions of painting (such as the mono chrome\, serial structures\, and fire and smoke paintings)\; the introduc tion of movement and light as both formal and idea-based aspects of art\; the use of space as subject and material\; the interrogation of the rela tionship between nature\, technology\, and humankind\; and the production of live actions or demonstrations.
