Vik Muniz

I chose "Hummingbird" 2012 by Vik Muniz. The medium is scrap metal, and the hummingbird is one of the repurposed scrap metal pieces part of a series of animals. The gold metal makes each piece pop and stand out to the audience. I chose this series and more specifically this animal because the contrast of scrap metal to such a beautiful animal is great. Muniz was really able to transform the garbage to beautiful art.
