«hungry eyes / thirsty ears / fresh frozen smile» is the title for so+ba’s contribution to the «graphic passport 2010 exhibition» held in tokyo from september 23 to 29, 2010.
so+ba created 6 panels for the exhibition. collages of different projects which so+ba has developed during the past four years. eacht panel has a theme, and they are connected by large cut out letters that read «hungry eyes*», front to back and back to front again.
playing with accidental views through the open shapes, each angle shows a different combination of information in a different context. all panels with different projects share a common approach to authorship and design process. together they form a new piece of information, a new «cadaver exquis», exemplified in the theme of panel 5.
