This work is part of my Worldwide Breast Cancer project, a doctoral study on information design in breast cancer detection. It was found that communicating the signs of breast cancer was difficult, because it was either communicated through words which wasn’t very easy to visualise, or through line drawings which still didn’t show enough detail.

Instead, I used lemons as a visual metaphor to represent the breast, that I could then use to communicate detailed information about the signs of breast cancer. These visuals have been used in North America, Europe and Asia and can be displayed publicly without censorship.
