Elise Morin and Clémence Eliard: Wastelandscape

Designed by French artist Elise Morin and Architect Clémence Eliard, the installation called 'Wastelandscape' overtakes the 'halle d'aubervilliers'of Paris's centquatre.

Featuring over 65,000 old CDs, sorted and hand-sewn together into a 500-square meter surface, the result resembles an amazing wave. the piece is on show until September 10th.
"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."

Is that a response to Anish Kapoor's Leviathan at Le Grand Palais? I wonder...
