Artists give discarded CDs new life, turns 65,000 of them into art installation

by Gavril Mankoo

Give an artist a bunch of scrap, and he’s sure as hell bound to come up with something, at least that’s what we’ve learnt from all the bits and pieces artists around the world have put together to create art. French artist Elise Morin and architect Clémence Eliard came up with this slick piece of art from discarded CDs! Now CDs seem to be facing their end these days, with portable data transfer being made easier and inexpensive with pen drives and such around. So, CDs have been ending up in dumps quicker than ever. Salvaging about 65,000 of these, the two created the Wastelandscape, an art arrangement in the form of hills, made from CDs.
