'Waste Landscape' by Elise Morin and Clémence Eliard presents the future of unsold or discarded CDs. This form of music making is slowly becoming a dying medium, and these artists shed light on the entire life-cycle of certain products including the hazardous effects on the environment.

According to the artists, "the project joins a global, innovative and committed approach, from its means of production until the end of its life." By showing viewers what happens to these materials after use, the artists hope to raise awareness concerning hazards to the health of the planet, and demonstrate how to use art as a means to improve certain social issues.

Implications - As more and more countries around the world go through revolutionary phases, the re-appropriation of public space is becoming an important part of daily life as numerous society's see the need for a renewed sense of community living.
