Elise Morin and Clémence Eliard’s Wastelandscape

The Compact Disc was created and first marketed in 1982. Since that point, more than 200 billion have been manufactured. A daunting number when you consider they’re mainly made from petroleum. This is one of the realizations French artist Elise Morin and architect Clémence Eliard wanted to share by creating their massive “wastelandscape.” Wastelandscape consists of 65,000 cd’s arranged and hand-sewn together to form what appears to be metallic sloping dunes. It is currently on display in Paris at the Centquatre‘s halle d’aubervilliers. Wastelandscape will move to several different locations and change shape to reflect its surroundings each time. Ultimately, the plan is to use an environmentally-friendly process to recycle the cd’s into polycarbonate.
