Thousands of compact discs make up a river of sparkles in this exhibit at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art. The piece is called Ferryman's Crossing and it is also by Bruce Munro, the artist who has the light exhibit at the Desert Botanical Garden.
The CD's are laid out in a wave like pattern and pulses of light are flashed onto their surface making it look like sunshine on rippling water. The added sound of water flowing and bubbling makes the effect complete. It has a very calming effect just like sitting on a beach or a river's edge.
