With Banana, I traced and cut one example of this fruit in ten different stages of being peeled and displayed the resulting shapes on the floor. This piece has a calligraphic feature not found in previous works, along with a subtle quality in the way it blends with the floor, which intends to recreate the joke of falling by stepping on a banana peel.
