French Artists Sew Together 65,000 CDs


When’s the last time you used a CD? I did burn a dual layer DVD recently, but CDs? Can’t remember. However, I do still have a lot of music on CDs. That being said, check out what French artists Clémence Eliard and Elise Morin created with the help of 65,000 CDs.

They laid them out on inflatable mounds to create a sort of sea of discs. They call it  Waste Landscape and it’s located in Paris through September 11, 2011.

Their purpose was to “reveal the precious aspect of a small daily object” and to transform daily mundane objects into scultpures. For now, they look like a metallic sea dune, but once Wastelandscape travels through different exhibitions, it will be changed and adapted into new shapes. Ultimately, the discs will be recycled.

It’s also a sort of commentary on removable media, and what becomes of it when it hits the dumpster. Remember all those AOL CDs you kept getting in the mail?
