Diaspora Cloud, 2017 by Vik Muniz

Vik Muniz’s Diaspora Cloud features a cloud floating against a blue background and cites an earlier work of Muniz’s, which was commissioned by Creative Time: Clouds, (from 2001), a “low tech illusion,” wherein clouds were “drawn” over the Manhattan skyline by a crop-dusting plane re-worked for skywriting. Diaspora Cloud, in title and image, may suggest a geographically and temporally dispersed public coming together to imagine new, if ephemeral, forms of community.

 

About Vik Muniz

Photographer and mixed-media artist Vik Muniz is best known for repurposing everyday materials for intricate and heavily layered recreations of canonical artworks. Muniz works in a range of media, from trash to peanut butter and jelly, the latter used to recreate Andy Warhol’s famous Double Mona Lisa (1963) that was in turn an appropriation of Da Vinci’s original. Muniz’s Perfect Strangers is installed at the newly-opened 72nd Street subway station in New York City.

 

Creative Time has previously worked with Vik Muniz on Clouds and the Creative Time Summit.
