American Flag 2009

i chose this artwork done by vik muniz because i thought it was different, and cool because of how it is done made of plants. what makes this interesting is how Muniz’s work is the idea of what he calls a “perceptual bottleneck.” In this work, the viewer can choose either to see a flag or the substance from which it is made which is plants. It is this two-pronged approach. the creation and then the documentation – that makes Muniz’s work a unique combination of real event and reproduction.
