"Rook was fascinated by these [produce Price Look Up] labels with their coded data and bright colours, and she began not only to collect them, but also to scan them and print her own copies of them which she has used in various ways--for example to wrap and thus to brand apples and pears, and even trees."--Victoria and Albert Museum, website.
