The SMS Portfolios were a collaboration between William Copley and Dmitri Petrov, which they published through their Letter Edged in Black Press. Involving some of the most important artists of the twentieth century, and exemplifying the community ethos of the ’60s, SMS bypassed traditional institutions to distribute the artist's work directly to its audience. Six portfolios containing eleven to thirteen objects were produced in editions of 2000.

This SMS edition is a sound piece by American artist Bruce Nauman, playing a loop of sound “for as loud and as long as you can stand it.” The sound is recorded onto a strip of recorded magnetic tape, wound around a folded Op art card, and printed with instructions for playing.
