Designer Bruce Munro
has created an installation
titled DCSea in Long Knoll, Wiltshire in the United Kingdom formed by 600,000 used CDs. The vast numbers of CDs were generously donated by the public after Munro advertised his desire for their used and unwanted ones. The "sea" is also diagonally bisected by a sharply winding grassy path.
The inspiration for CDSea came to Munro on a Sunday afternoon at a rocky beach. "The light was still strong, like a blanket of shimmering silver light. I had this childish notion that by putting my hand in the sea I
was somehow connected to my home in Salcombe, where my father lived. . . I came away from the beach in a very positive frame of mind, at one with the world." He hopes to pass on his positive experience to others.
Munro plans for CDSea to be the first in a series of installations that utilize recycled or discarded materials.
