Hummingbird by Vik Muniz

Composite 16 May 2016 0 Comments

Brazlian artist Vik Muniz is no stranger to transforming trash and other discard items into beautiful works of art.  We previously featured a video in which Muniz used hand-torn scraps of paper from magazines to recreate Van Gogh’s The Starry Night.  In 2012, Muniz created a series of composite artworks under a series titled Scrap Metal.  One of these works, presented below, shows a hummingbird created from various discarded pieces of scrap metal.  You can understand the full scale of this artwork by observing the car doors that are incorporated into the photograph.  I would be very curious to know how high off the ground the camera was when this photograph was taken.
