Thirst was invited to create a unique installation in honor of the tenth anniversary of the Typeforce exhibition held at Chicago's Co-Prosperity Sphere gallery. The installation is a simultaneous presentation of two pieces on top of each other — one in CNC-cut foam and one in projected light. Every designer in the studio contributed to the installation.
Building the Wall (or An Homage to a Better Daze)
In the manner of Gastrotypographicassemblage, Lou Dorfsman’s CBS cafeteria mural wall, c.1966, the Thirst Collective cooked up something to chew on, in the form of Daily Diet, a bento box sampling of overused words that constantly taint our newsfeeds.
Tear down that Wall
In the manner of Electronic Superhighway: Continental U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, Nam June Paik’s installation at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, c.1995, the Thirst Collective broadcasts something to meditate upon, in the form of Neurons Firing, a digital collage sampling of words and ideas that constantly permeate our consciousness.
