Sound Wave: A Wave of Vinyl Records

Second Lives: Remixing the Ordinary
September 27, 2008 - February 15, 2009

This awesome sculpture was created by Korean artist Jean Shin. Dubbed the "Sound Wave," it's made from a large number of melted vinyl records.

Second Lives: Remixing the Ordinary will be the inaugural exhibition at the Museum of Arts & Design when it opens in a new building at 2 Columbus Circle in September 2008. The exhibition features work by 50 international established and emerging artists from all five continents who create objects and installations comprised of ordinary and everyday manufactured articles, most originally made for another functional purpose.

“Second Lives” continues through Feb. 15 at the Museum of Arts and Design, 2 Columbus Circle, New York, NY; (212) 299-7777, madmuseum.org.
