His work seems interesting, but the site is such a prime example of the "let's make it really pretty and totally unnavigable" school of web design that I gave up quickly. :-(

>worst possible illusion video<

Thanks Ze for posting! He's a wonderful artist. I've been a fan since I saw his TED talk. I especially like Sugar Children.

This is great stuff. Even the video in Swedish is worth a watch. I'd seen the chocolate art in passing but I really appreciate getting the context of the rest of Vik Muniz's work and knowing a bit more about him.

Guy's smart, without a lot of affected posing which is refreshing... I have seen the Goya painting he described in the one video. Bookmarked. Thanks.

Vik's artwork is amazing. Especially since he paints with my favorite, Bosco Chocolate Syrup!

Thanks for the kind post, Ze. We have to go to TED again sometime. When you think too much without laughing a lot in the process, your face gets full of awfully asymmetric wrinkles.
