Event Horizon by Leticia Bajuyo, an artist living and working in Southern Indiana, is a mesmerizing art installation made out of thousands of shiny compact discs. Creating almost exclusively with this nearly obsolete material, the artist has learned to manipulate them into large-scale works of art that will catch people's eyes immediately.

Currently on display at Eastfield College in Mesquite, Texas, Event Horizon by Leticia Bajuyo, who is also an Associate Professor of Art at Hanover College, is comprised of glimmering sculptures that take on the form of vortexes. Interestingly, they don't just end abruptly. Instead, the sculptures extend into long worm holes with the help of fishing lines, cable ties and wood. According to My Modern Met, "Each piece reveals a specific message pertaining to the medium, technology and society."
