This poster for the Sensation exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London was designed by Why Not Associates and is a simple juxtaposition that perfectly depicts "sensation." the tongue and iron mimic each other, while at the same time appear to touch. Assuming the iron was hot, if this event ever were to come to flourishion, the "sensation" one would experience would be one of extreme pain. Perhaps the Designer is inferring the exhibition will be painful?...probably not.
