As part of the Imagem do Som exhibition dedicated to the music of Gilberto Gil, the song “Rebento” (“Sprout”) was conceived as a three-dimensional collage in large format. Previously unreleased, this image is part of a series formed by superimposing two anonymous faces, originally created by Rico Lins for the Op-Ed page of The New York Times. Like this one, the original illustrations published in black and white make use of faces collected from the daily press in texts regarding racial issues.
