Artist and author Sean Avery has come up with what is without a doubt the single greatest use for old CDs. Cutting up the dics into carefully shaped shards, he pieces them together into spectacular animal sculptures. The shmmering, textural work is decidedly lo-tech, using hot glue and wire frames, but almost certainly labor intensive. The feathers of the hummingbird above, for instance, must have taken some time to piece together. It’s delightful, astounding work, and a not-too-subtle jab at the impermanence of media. See many more pictures, after the break.
