Compact Disc which we fondly address as a CD is used to store digital data. In this technology driven world this optical disc holds a very important place in our life. Its rainbow colored surface add a mystic charm and is capable of storing all the important information, songs, movies in short store any kind of data.But they are so delicate that a few scratches and they are fit to be thrown in a dust bin. People don’t even mind throwing a CD as it does not cost heavily on the pocket. Making good use of these discarded CD’s is Aditi Goenka. A textile designer by profession and a graduate from Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology Bangalore, she has given a whole new life to these cute looking discs.
She has with her genuine and artistic efforts made these discarded CDs bloom and spread fragrance all around. Aditi has crafted a collection of flowers using this waste, christened as CD Blossoms, which has the tendency to become obsolete soon. Since, they can break easily and once the data is transferred from them they practically serve no purpose. Every year countless numbers of CDs are disposed off which add to the already piling junk and deteriorate the environment further.
Using them in a sensible and eco-friendly manner like Aditi can make even an abandoned CD acceptable. The artist has crafted flowers in such an eye-appealing manner that they look real with all the fine details intact. Place them in any corner and see the magic they stir with their charming looks. She has beautifully mixed plastic fragility with the natural flora which makes the whole collection look so vivid. With the flowers Aditi has created from CDs, she has highlighted the fact that today’s world comes enveloped with plasticity and humans now-a-days appreciate virtual beauty more than the natural one. So, grab all the old CDs that are catching dust and craft something useful out of them and become a planet lover.
Thanks for the tip, Aditi Goenka
