Clinton de Menezes's 30-foot wide map of the world consists entirely of thousands of miniature human figures standing in plaster. Menezes handpainted each of the 6,000 little people and sorted them into little communities. Multidisciplinary artist Clinton De Menezes created a fascinating landscape in this World Map installation. The artist used oil paint, emulsion, acrylic, plaster, and hand painted model figures to create the captivating piece, in which migrating crowds of miniature individuals form a larger land mass that is displayed from an aerial view. With extreme attention to detail, De Menezes hand-painted 6,000 figures and then purposefully set each one into the plaster in order to collectively form the almost 30 foot wide map of our planet.

Megan Fox covers Marie Claire and Iin the interview she talks about why her marriage (to Brian Green) works: ‘I just think we got lucky. I believe he’s my soulmate. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t take work, because we are very, very different. But we are tolerant of each other and we try to be patient with each other, and I don’t try to turn him into me and he knows not to try to turn me into him. ‘He’s one of those,’ she says, giggling at the thought. Fantasy man, I ask? Gorgeous and tidy? ‘He cooks, too,’ Fox smiles. ‘I can cook, but I also want everything to look beautiful on the plate – then I get upset when people eat it. Everyone just tears through it and that makes me sad. It’s not a rewarding experience for me to cook.’ If Fox has an early call, Green gets up to make her coffee and breakfast. ‘He really is amazing. I should never, ever even think about complaining.’ To read the interview in full, see the March issue of Marie Claire out this Thursday.
