Vik Muniz is a Brazilian who I have just become aware of. He is a very versatile artist who used to do renditions of famous pieces of art using foods, including chocolate. Some more recent works, however, have included photos from the ceiling of a warehouse that were the result of maticulously placed junk. You absolutely have to see the video's offered on his website vikmuniz.net! Because of the software, I can't link directly to the video (or at least don't know how). I couldn't even find videos on youtube.

One particular piece has a title that was similar to one that I used in an Art I critique. With the help of several workers, Muniz is able to create a piece in about a month and a half. Each is about the size of a basketball court. I think that his work is particularly interesting now because of the use of junk in an environmentally friendlier world.
Question: Can we give him 100% credit as the artist if he left several people to work on it without him being there?
