HOW TO COLLAGE WITH VIK MUNIZ  INTEL, 3min (2012)

"Brazilian artist Vik Muniz's photographs are ornate puzzles. They are intricately conceived and meticulously realized tricks of the eye. He'll take unexpected materials like dirt, sugar, chocolate syrup, and other odd detritus and brilliantly sculpt and arrange them into photo-realistic images. His work produces a dizzying effect. When you first look at his photographs, you see a pell-mell group of objects. But once you take a step back, an image reveals itself."

Artist Vik Muniz and his friends are focusing their expertise on the Rio de Janeiro-based school, Spectaculu.

The Spectaculu Art and Technology School is an arts and education non-profit that gives youth in Rio de Janeiro's low-income communities the chance to enhance their artistic and cultural education and development by providing them with tangible skill sets and self-esteem.

Spectaculu is divided into two distinct schools—a Center for the Performing Arts and a Center for Visual Arts and Technology. In both schools, core reading, writing, and communication fundamentals are reinforced alongside more arts-based and visual design classes.

Herbert Marques, the participant in this video, shows us a day in the life of Spectaculu and his experiences in and out of the classroom.
