Creative minds from different disciplines when come together with some ideas in mind the results are always stupendous. Wavy Waste Landscape Installation is the best exemplar! Elise Morin, the renowned artist and Clémence Eliard the architect of SMALL MEDIUM LARGE -SML design studio in collaboration with the 104.fr collected, sorted and hand-sewed 65,000 CDs to come up with a shining waste landscape.
As the name hints, the ‘Waste Landscape’ was created as a comment on waste; life cycles, life of objects, different phases of an object and the environment itself. The used CD that otherwise are destined to be thrown in the bin were not dumped instead used in a constructive and creative way to leave the spectators amazed.
Unbelievably, 65,00 CDs were collected, sorted out and sewed together to turn them into rolling hills of shiny aluminium installation. Stupendous glittering Waste Landscape is installed at the space of the Centquatre at the Halle d’Aubervilliers in Paris.
The combined efforts of the ingenious artist and an amazing architect commenting on waste resulted into the artwork that is the major source of attraction for the visitors and is undeniably worth applauding.
The strikingly gigantic CD “bubbles” is installed in space that is open and airy. Besides this, the natural light reflects off the CDs making it appear all the more gigantic. The size of the CD bubbles is 500 square meters. On the very first glimpse, the silver round “metallic dunes” seem cumbersome and as the eye follows the shape of the round installation it looks all the more appealing.
The abstract piece of art crafted using the small round disks is quite mesmerizing. These shiny and technological marvelous symbols of modernity change the perception of people making them understand how the otherwise waste material can be crafted to create the marvelous artworks.
Read on as to what the artists say about these installations:
“The project joins a global, innovative, and committed approach, from its means of production until the end of its life. Waste Landscape will be displayed in locations coherent with the objectives of the project: art’s role in society, raising consciousness towards environmental problems through culture, alternative modes of production and the valuation of district associative work and professional rehabilitation. Waste Landscape is at the crossroad of contemporary art, landscaping and environmental concerns.”
The artists have even given their installation a life cycle that will be exhibited in multiple spaces. With the passing time, these shiny hills of CDs will be recycled down into polycarbonate to convey the concept of waste and transformation.
Now, this is what we call the eco-art that is mesmerizingly cool.
