• WasteLandscape, art installation made from 65,000 waste CDs

    When it comes to giving junk a new life, artists around seem to boast a Midas touch of sorts. Artists Elise Morin and Clémence Eliard breathed life back into thrown away CDs, a technology that seems to be gradually fading away, with data sharers now moving to inexpensive and reusable devices like pen drives. Scavenging about 65,000 of them from waste yards, the pair has built an art installation called the WasteLandscape, shaped like hills. The CDs were sorted and then sewn by hand to create a giant CD fabric by Morin, an artist, and Eliard, an architect.

    So the next time you decide to chuck something into the waste bin, think twice! You could probably give it a newer purpose and build something as beautiful!
