Wanderer Above the Sea of Media, after Caspar David Friedrich, Vik Muniz. 2011.
I admire the subtle inclusions of cosmic motifs. Scientific diagrams and representations of constellations and galaxies suggest our relationship with time in space. Others may see celebrity faces, art historical references, and other conventional images that allow the viewer to read further into their own ideas. Muniz is a craftsman of permissiveness; we can all find what we are looking for in these complex and layered pieces.
