An ode to the “nearly extinct” CD!

A unique art installation in Paris attempts to communicate an eco message using a modern-day object that is destined for certain extinction. The Compact Disc! 

Entitled WasteLandscape, by Elise Morin made of 65,000 CDs spread across 1,640 square feet of space at Le Centquatre Art Space in Paris. On display through September 11, 2011.

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.
