Wondering what to do with those old, dust-collecting CD piles on your desk? Australian sculptor and illustrator Sean Avery has a wonderful solution! The artist shatters old CD’s to make incredible animal sculptures.
“My sculptures are all constructed with recycled materials — old CDs, computer hard drives etc, so I classify my work as “sustainable art”. They’re a lot of fun to make, but they take an extremely long time to finish, so I don’t do a lot of them.”
Of course, this is not the only way to use old CDs. We’ve already talked about a French artist Elise Morin and architect Clémence Eliard who had hand-sewed together 65,000 old CDs to create an enormous 500-squere meter undulating landscape, so-called ‘Wastelandscape’.
