Architectural firm creates an installation from 6,000 CDs
‘Mirror Culture’ in Bulgaria
CDs have been hiding at the bottom of our drawers for quite some time now since the introduction of modern technological products. For its latest project, architectural firm Ignatov Architects has sourced inspiration and a new role for the reflective disks, using them to create a unique installation called 'Mirror Culture' in Varna, Bulgaria.
The art piece was put together by 128 volunteers, whom all helped to construct the design using 6,000 CDs at the entrance of the 'Sea Garden', one of Bulgaria's most popular parks.
"It was my fascination with the play of light on fish scales and on liquid surfaces that made me think of a flexible mirror," said project co-ordinator Borislav Ignatov. "I realised that the optical discs use the same principles of refraction and separation of light as fish scales and I decided to use them for the purpose."
