> what tools and materials changed your life? <

A lemon split in two and squeezed every morning. I pour hot water over the juice in my cup and drink until the sun rises. An exchange for a kind of orb that replaces the other orb. The lemon has become integral to questions. I have asked students to pass it around, I have asked participants in happenings to do the same. We have asked lemons questions, we have asked questions of ourselves while looking at a lemon.

I have spent very little money for a lemon and have spent way too much for a lemon. Once on a small island off the coast of Iceland I traded half a lemon for some cod from a fisherman where the Greenland Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean. A pocked rind thick and shiny – a density and weight in my hand. Yellows that are never identical, unusually sharp but always comforting.
