For the Word and Image exhibition Tadanori Yokoo created a poster with no typography to distract the viewer. Using mouths and one large eye he perfectly evokes the concept of 'word' and 'image' He employs the rays of the rising sun, one of his favorite and recurring motifs, but makes the colors red, white and blue for America rather than the usual Japanese red and white
