Modern Wasteland

Imagine billowing waves that look like the shiny scales of a mermaids tail.
This is Wastelandscape, an art installation by Elise Morin that explores the relationship between people and the things they throw away.

It is made of 65,000 old CDs that have been hand sewn together and then draped over inflatable mounds. I automatically think of water when I look at it. Water or one really massive sequined dress. How about you?

People are just so flipping creative! It amazes me.

This is UNREAL! I had no idea what it was when I first looked over the images, but as soon as I read that it was cds, I saw it right away. Amazing...

Wow! This is incredible!!!!
I wonder what this would look like if we took other things to big plastic milk jugs we buy. A mountain peak covered in bumpy peaks?
I love your images you takes me away from my mundane.
And I want that last pool....again.
