Muniz photographs his collages and presents his final work as a photographic print. This unifies the surface of the work, resulting in competing illusions of seamlessness and fragmentation. Originally a sculptor, Muniz is known for working with extraordinary materials, including chocolate, dust, diamonds, shredded magazines and pure pigments.
