The idea of taking a product that is no longer in use and turning it into some sort of art is not new. We’ve seen floppy disks used for paintings, vintage textiles becoming soft toy art, among other projects. Here, two French artists — Elise Morin and architect Clémence Eliard — used 65,000 old CDs, hand-sewed them together, then laid them out on inflatable mounds to create a sea of discs. The art exhibit is currently on show in Paris.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
