So that's where our discarded CD's went...

Now at least some of those CDs have a second life in this traveling art installation , which made its debut at the Halle d’Aubervilliers where it will stay until September 10th before moving on to the next location. The Halle was chosen because of its large skylight, which floods the space with lots of natural daylight and really makes the CDs shine.

At the end of the installation’s tour, all of the CDs will be recycled into polycarbonate.
