Recycling Old Media

Just take those old records off the shelf... and turn them into artwork.
Those of us “of a certain age” have seen the distribution of popular music take on and abandon a number of formats. Vinyl records, audio tapes, CDs; that’s a whole lot of discarded tech. Check out how one artist is recycling some of it.  (Click image to view more photos on P.S.1 site.)

Now on exhibit at P.S.1 through April 5, 2009, Christian Marclay’s 28822 Records (PS1), 1987-2009.  Take a walk on a floor of wall to wall 12 inch records and search for some of your favorite artist. All genres of music are said to be represented in the exhibition.
