Vik Muniz & Marcelo Coelho

grains and castles

Brazilian artist Vik Muniz made himself a name with rather gigantic composite installations. For his latest project though - documented by the Creator's Project - he teamed up with fellow artist and MIT researcher Marcelo Coelho to take the exact opposite route: sandcastles etched onto grains of sand.

“After four years of experimentation, Photographer Vik Muniz and designer Marcelo Coelho successfully created microscopic drawings of castles on single grains of sand. Take an in-depth look into the advanced and archaic processes and inspirations behind these revolutionary micro-masterpieces.“
