Vik Muniz

The Brazilian artist Vik Muniz takes well known images remembered from endless reproductions and recreates them from memory, using household materials like sugar, chocolate, and thread. He then uses the camera to record them. Muniz creates a witty and uncanny effect by translating well-known images into strange visual puzzles. We can either suspend disbelief by imagining the original photograph which inspired his invention, or think of his work as virtuoso pieces of drawing which last only seconds for the camera before melting or disintegrating.
