Waste Landscape

Posted by on August 29, 2011

This bunch of fabulous was created by French artist Elise Morin and architect Clémence Eliard. They took 65,000 old CDs and hand sewed them together into this shiny quilt of awesomeness.

‘Waste Landscape’ is installed in a public space in Paris, and is part of Paris’s Centquatre.  The piece will be on display through September 10th.


“Waste Landscape” will be installed elsewhere, but each time it will be in different configurations.  At the end, all the CDs will be recycled into polycarbonate.

I love that visitors can wander through the instillation.  For me, interacting with art on a basic level makes it so much more compelling. I also love that this beauty was created from leftover materials.  Makes me want to hop a flight to Paris…
