Vik Muniz is all over the place these days, and I recently discovered that he spoke at TED a few years ago. For those of you who haven't had the chance to see the spectacular documentary about Vik Muniz's work, Waste Land, here's a great video that provides a short overview of Vik's career and creative inspiration, as well as a bit of background on how he got started.
It's available in English, but you can also watch it with Portuguese subtitles here. It shows some of Vik's earlier work, as well as charting the different mediums he's worked with throughout his career. It also shows Vik's clever sense of humor and some of very funny sculptures I'd never seen before.
