The edition by Cédric Eisenring consists of a series of serial unique pieces. The artist usually combines several printing and colouring techniques in his works, as here too. Among these, intaglio prints, produced with the help of used industrial waste plates, are particularly striking. The industrial plates are found objects that happen to take on forms by chance through industrial production, which are then found as the main form-giving features in Eisenring's works.

The use of the industrial hard disks in Eisenring's works creates a kind of relief, an industrial braille, which develops a spatial-haptic language in two-dimensional space. The empty spaces form narrative patterns of industrial waste in the pictorial space. The surreal-looking figures function as protagonists of an imaginary, partly psychedelic world, which captivates the viewer in varying colours.

In the new work, a Photoshop drawing is realized as a heliogravure on industrial hard disk. The heliogravure in turn was printed in three variations either on white or over a full yellow or green inkjet. All sheets were then hand-coloured with pens, making each individual work unique.
