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 consists of a paper disc printed with photographs arranged to be spun counterclockwise on a pencil and viewed in front of a mirror, simulating a motion picture. One side of the disc animates a bouncing basketball, while the reverse depicts a man licking a lollipop.
