Waste Landscape Constructed of CD’s

August 3, 2011

We’re not shy to banterabout the useless nature of compact discs nowadays.

While compact discs are hardly useful in today's digitally-accessible music world, they do make for pleasant arts and crafts.

However while we talk the talk, Élise Morin and Clémence Éliard, two French artists, are walking the walk. The pair constructed a massive rendition of a waste landscape composed primarily of used compact discs.

Over 65,000 to be more specific; hand-sewn together and placed within a 500-square meter surface.

The design is on display in Paris’ Centquatre Gallery from July 21 to November 9.

Nice work boys. Can anyone else suggest a better use for your CD’s, that doesn’t include shelf-filler?
