    About The Work

    The heart of Vik Muniz’s work lies in his theory of “perceptual bottleneck,” which dictates that the viewer can choose to see either the subject, or the material when regarding his work. It is this two-pronged approach—the creation and then the documentation—that makes Muniz's work a unique combination of real event and reproduction. In this limited edition candle, Light Me Up!, Muniz presents his take on the traditional seven-day saint candle featuring his Nossa Senhora Das Graças, Pictures of Junk (2008).

    The fragrance was custom created by Identity Atelier, a thoughtful blend of fresh bergamot, blooming orange flower, crisp pink peppercorn, pure rose petals, rare elemi resin, and warm amber—especially for Creative Time.
