Wow and thank you! Me and my mum recently found a large cardboard box completely filled with blank CD's (the ones you can put stuff on just the once then it's unchangeable I think) in my nans house (why, I don't know) and we took them home and they are currently sitting in my shed, with no use for them. So maybe i'll try this technique when I have time :)
I have tried it with the leaves from a pineapple and it would look awesome if I could figure out how to stick thm together haha. I need to buy a glue gun anyway :)
You know the legs and things? Is that just the mesh underneath the paint? Or is it foil or something
Thanks!

Thanks for all the comments and the favs! This one took around 50 CDs to make if I remember correctly. Go ahead and try the technique if you'd like, a few other people have! =)

Oh. Hell. Yes.

Amazing work. Clipping out all those disc shards must've been the very definition of "painstaking". Props for "peregrine awareness"! :D

Sure, go ahead! Here's a little spiel about the CD sculpture stuff:


I started making fractured CD art when I was 15. I've always been fascinated with the way light and colour reflects off a disc, I've never found any other material to match it. Each creature starts as a wire mesh armature that I shape with a pair of pliers. I cut up as many discs as I need with a pair of kitchen scissors, arrange the shards according to size and colour attach them to the frame using a hot glue gun. I arrange them in a natural fur/feather pattern so the creatures look strangely organic with a distinct sense of movement. I have made sculptures that contain as many as 300 discs and have taken more than a month to complete.

Thanks again for the support!

This is amazing, Sean. I love art that reuses and recycles. I blog often about environmental art over at The Keeper of the Zoo. I would love to blog about you tomorrow. Would that be okay with you? And can you tell me more about what got you started and inspired you to use cds to make this kind of art?
