Same Same... Folio Exchange

My Specimens... 

A little bit about this project.
Each leaf was relief printed in black onto acetate. These acetate prints were then used as positives for screen printing. I exposed all my leaves onto a screen and printed it three times. Once on fluoro orange cardboard, once on brown paper and once onto purple plastic.

The image above is a photo of all my leaves before they were distributed for the exchange folios. Each participant of the exchange was given one orange, one brown and one purple printed leaf - chosen randomly. Each participant received a completely unique set of prints and each print had its own specimen number.
