Wastelandscape Made of 65,000 Old CDs

If you wonder what to do with those old, dust-collecting CD piles on your desk – don’t even think of throwing them away, because we have a much, much better idea! (Not to mention that it will take over 1 million years for a CD to completely decompose in a landfill[1].)

French artist Elise Morin and architect Clémence Eliard hand-sewed together 65,000 old CDs to create an enormous 500-squere meter undulating landscape, so-called ‘Wastelandscape’ which overtakes the ‘Halle D’aubervilliers’ of Paris’s centquatre.

In the artists’ words: ‘made of petroleum, this reflecting slick of CDs forms a still sea of metallic dunes; the artwork’s monumental scale reveals the precious aspect of a small daily object.’

    I was a the CentQuatre last week, and I think you should take a look at this, little panda : http://lunettesrouges.blog.lemonde.fr/2011/09/27/exposition-deconseillee-aux-personnes-sensibles/leandro-erlich-batiment/ . It’s by Leandro Erlich, and I think that you had already posted pictures of his “swimming pool”. I “climbed” on that building (as you would have guessed, it’s a game of mirrors) and I thought of this website. Coincidences ;)

    Looks like a ripoff from a building in Poland, in their capital city there is a mall called “the golden terraces” – originally Zlote Tarasy ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Zlote_tarasy_zima2011.JPG ) which structure was inspired by the looks of a heavily destroyed and crushed by the nazi bombs Warsaw.
