Take a look at this amazing sculpture titled “Wastelandscape” and currently featured in Paris. It is comprised of 65,000 music CDs. The art sculpture was the creation of Elise Morin and Clemence Eliard in an effort to show the beauty of everyday objects and to shed light on the waste brought about by the music CD which is in the process of being phased out due to new technology. The metallic sea will be part of many exhibitions. Afterwards, the CDs will be recycled.
It is well known that CDs are condemned to gradually disappear from our daily life, and to later participate in the construction of immense open-air, floating or buried toxic waste reception centers. Made of petroleum, this reflecting slick of CDs forms a still sea of metallic dunes: the art work’s monumental scale reveals the precious aspect of a small daily object. — Wastelandscape
