Disgust is something fascinating. We don’t want to look at disgusting things, but it is difficult not to look as well. They are attractive and repulsive at the same time. Particularly body fluids can have this ambivalent effect. Saliva, sweat and discharge can be extremely disgusting. But sometimes they create feelings of intimacy and well-being.
I wanted to create a ‚juice‘ that can trigger the same ambivalence in us.
