CD Sea

Bruce Munroe (Bruce Munro), known for his light sculptures and installations, a few weeks ago, with the help of the British press and BBC, Wiltshire radio asked readers and listeners to send him unnecessary CDs. People did not remain indifferent, and not only the British, but also residents of other states, and after a while, through the efforts of Bruce Munro, another sea appeared in Britain - laid out from CDs on the grass.

So, last weekend (June 19-20) Bruce Munro, as well as 140 of his friends, acquaintances and colleagues, started creating an installation. In a field near the village of Kilmington, a patch of grass was mowed and discs were laid out in the resulting clearing. What happened in the end? Amazing "inner" sea, consisting of 600 thousand CDs (!), Reflecting the sun and moonlight, like small mirrors.

The creation of such an installation Bruce Munroe was inspired by the impressions he received on the seashore in Australia thirty years ago. “The light was so strong that the water seemed to glow like silver. And it suddenly seemed to me that if I put my hand into the sea, it would somehow connect me to my house in Salkomb, where my father lived … I left the beach in a very good mood,”the author says. On that day, the boy realized for the first time that such a familiar phenomenon as light can affect a person's emotional state. The installation "CD Sea" was a recreation of that moment, which, as it turned out later, influenced the rest of Bruce Munro's life.

“You never know how this or that work will end, but now I am happy, - says Bruce Munroe. - I am extremely grateful to everyone who agreed to help us. It was a magical weekend and CD Sea looks amazing, like a huge painting painted on the grass. " The installation will last for about two months, after which all the discs will be assembled and sent to a recycling plant.
