WARMINSTER, UK – Bruce Munro installed his
new
artwork ‘CDSea’ in a field near Kilmington over the weekend, after his
appeal to collect unwanted CDs from the general public netted him
600,000 discs
for the installation. Munro’s ‘CDSea’ is the first of a number of
self-funded
installations using discarded or recycled materials, planned for Long
Knoll
Field, which is bisected by a public footpath. “It’s a great public
gallery
space” says Munro. Over the weekend 140 friends and colleagues,
including Kevin
McCloud and other celebrities from the design-art world, helped to lay
the
installation. One family arriving from Frome in Somerset for a day out
helping
to build the artwork had a young boy with them. He sidled up to Munro
and asked,
“ Are you the one making the sea?”
