Where do all those "1000 HOURS FREE!" AOL discs end up? Apparently at Long Knoll Park in Kilmington, England, where a group of 160 friends recently laid 600,000 discs to create CDSea, a massive waterway of obsolete media.
CDSea is the work of artist Bruce Munro, who put out the call for unused CDs only a few weeks ago. Unsurprisingly, they poured in by the thousands. But the work was inspired by a moment almost three decades ago, when Munro was in Sydney, Australia:
The light was still strong, like a blanket of shimmering silver light. I had this childish notion that by putting my hand in the sea I was somehow connected to my home in Salcombe, where my father lived //// I came away from the beach in a very positive frame of mind.
A highly personal piece of art that's also an impressive public spectacle—let's see you do that with your iTunes library. CDSea will remain installed in the park for two months—the snaking section in the middle is intended as a public pathway—after which the CDs will be recycled. Think of it as one last tribute to the AOLs and Limp Bizkits of the world before they fade away forever [Yatzer]

I personally find this disturbing. I can imagine my wife doing the whole Imperial Storm Trooper corset bit—available for $500. But the Darth Vader one—available for $600—could lead to some weird sexual fantasies.
The corsets are made of vinyl, and come with the accessories you see int the photos. They are not officially licensed, but who cares. I don't want George Lucas' name over my wife's panties. [Evening Arwen via Likecool via Gizmodo]
Brilliant! and from the look of it rather nicely designed too!
