    The negative was lost, consequently the edition was never completed. The print is annotated on verso "Self-portrait with Objects 1981/82," signed and dated "General Idea 1982." The image was first used on a greeting card announcing General Idea's stay at the Western Front, Vancouver, December 1981, while making the videotape Cornucopia (1982).
