CDs may be near death, but these sculptures breathe new life into the medium by combining unique art with innovative up-cycling.

In his mixed media sculptures of animals and insects, artist Sean Avery creates fur and feathers using meticulously layered fragments of broken CDs.

“My sculptures are all constructed with recycled materials — old CDs, computer hard drives, etc, so I classify my work as “sustainable art,” writes Sean.

Sean hails from Australia, but is currently living in Canada. He’s an artist, sculptor, writer-illustrator of children’s picture books and graphic designer.

Posted in DNA 11 House, media, party by Adrian on May 13th, 2009
 

After three beautiful months in sunny Los Angeles the time has arrived to “pop down” our temporary pop-up gallery. By all measures it was a huge success. Hundreds of guided tours, piles of media and  a great wrap up party co-hosted by our friends of 944 Magazine ensured we went out with a bang!  We made lots of fantastic friends in Los Angeles and we’ll be back soon.

Here are some of the pictures from the DNA 11 / 944 Magazine event. Many thanks to GreenSUV for providing the transportation, HOPE Wines for supplying the wine, Poixen (for the delicious pisco sours) Carly Harill from 944 for helping to coordinate everything and of course our PR firm RF-PR.
