This weekend MFTA asked visitors at Maker Faire New York to contribute to a participatory work called the CD City. We love turning obsolete materials into art and the CD City was no different: An item that has been largely replaced was transformed into an art project that almost anyone can recreate at home (in schools, or community centers too) for little or no cost.
Building structures is not the only thing you can do with CD cases. MFTA has been creating weaving projects using the cases and the visitors to Maker Faire made some great examples.
You can bring MFTA to your event to recreate this project or many others, click here for more information. Also check Matt Hickman’s blog on Mother Nature Network for a great set of pictures from Maker Faire.
