The MFTA CD City at Maker Faire New York 2011

The CD City takes shape at Maker Faire NYC 2011

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.
