...and then it was time to get lost in the Vik Muniz exhibit for a while. The breadth of his creativity is amazing. He does portraits in black beans, caviar, peanut butter and jelly, junk, powdered pigments, magazine photos, dirt, sugar, and on, and on.
He's done huge arrangements of junk and photographed it from two or three stories up. He worked with an MIT pioneer to use a laser to engrave sand castles on single grains of sand and then photographed them with a microscope. From there he used bulldozers on a plain to make huge sketches and took aerial photographs of them.
What scale. What an inventive mind without boundaries.

This sculpture changes perspective as you walk past it.
On my walk back to the hotel I couldn't resist grabbing some snapshots of midtown. It's very photogenic.
