The ‘CD Sea’ by Bruce Munro

I wonder how many copies of ‘Creed Human Clay’ and ‘Limp Bizkit Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water’ are in there?’ …’The Boondock Saints’… 😀 All of them?

Random cool art like this is beautiful. Artist Bruce Munro had an ingenious idea to turn a grassy landscape into a shimmering bed of reflective light.

His newest installation ‘CD Sea’ is the first of a number of self-funded ‘eco’ installations using recycled materials, at Long Knoll Field in Wiltshire:

Munro visualized an inland sea made of unwanted CDs. He was just 1 million CDs short and then the public responded with hundreds of CDs arriving from all over the UK and as far afield as California and Brazil. Well it has certainly paid off and looks amazing:

The scaly rainbow will remain on public view for the next two months, before being dismantled and sent to a recycling plant in Frome.

“You never know how something will work out, but now I could not be happier. I’m so grateful to everyone who turned out to help. We had a magical weekend and CDSea looks amazing, like a giant painting on the grass.” – Bruce Munro
