CDs suddenly don't seem so obsolete when artist Sean Avery reassembles them as beautiful, (literally) reflective pieces of art. His ability to create the texture of fur and feathers using nothing but recycled materials is not only impressive but visually striking. Unfortunately trying to pet any of these animals would probably yield to a whole lot of band-aids.
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.
