65,000 Old CDs Create a Shimmering Sea

We’ll never look at CDs the same away again after seeing these images of Wastelandscape, an installation by French artist Elise Morin composed of 65,000 old CDs. Care to see this in person? You’ll find it in Paris at the Centquatre art space, which was formerly a funeral home. The space is now a unique center for creativity that’s open to all types of artistic expression including music, dance and theater.

The artist envisioned Wastelandscape to be like “a still sea of metallic dunes.” The CDs were hand-sewn together into an astounding 500-square meter surface and then draped over inflatable mounds.



If you’re in Paris, make sure to check this out before September 10, 2011. The exhibition will then travel to other locations, transforming itself each time before the CDs are recycled into polycarbonate.
