Lemon slice poster. Nine posters were printed identically, and gold leaf was pressed onto nine lemon slices using heat. And each lemon has a different light. In my day-to-day work, I try to make posters and printed matter look exactly the same, but I like the irregularity of the pieces, like lemons, which have different brilliance depending on how they are cut.
