Australian artist Sean E Avery is a writer-illustrator of children’s picture books and a sculptor who makes beautiful animal sculptures with recycled materials — old CDs, computer hard drives and others. “CDs come in a zillion different colours and I never know what colours will be available to me on any given day.” His animals’ colors are definitely well chosen and impressing. Sean talks of his work as ‘sustainable art’, I think he is right. Last week-end I found a box of old data backup CDs and I didn’t know what to do with it because my computer doesn’t even read them anymore. Now I have an idea, maybe I can send them to Australia.
