65,000 CDs




Yowza, talk about putting an everyday object to good use! Artist Élise Morin and architect Clémence Eliard completely took over the Halle d’Aubervilliers of Paris's
Centquatre with their installation, Wastelandscape.
"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."
This installation is beautiful both up close and from afar. I wish I could walk around it throughout the day and see how it changes in the varying light (can you imagine it at sunset?). Wastelandscape is only up until September 10th, but the good news is that the piece is going to travel and transform in each new exhibition location. I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of landscape they create next!
