wastelandscape by elise morin & clémence eliard


'wastelandscape', an installation by elise morin and clémence eliard

created by french artist elise morin and architect clémence eliard, 'wastelandscape' overtakes the 'halle d'aubervilliers' of paris's centquatre with an undulating landscape composed of 65,000 old CDs, sorted and hand-sewn together into a 500-square meter surface. the piece is on exhibition at the centquatre now through september 10th.

in the artists' words:
'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.'

'wastelandscape' is planned for exhibition in multiple locations, transforming each time, before eventually being completely recycled into polycarbonate.
