Rock Icons Reborn Via CD Mosaics

If these rock icons were still alive, I’d bet my hat that they’d think this was cool. Artists Mirco Pagano and Moreno De Turco, working with multinational ad agency TBWA for a campaign called “Piracy,” created these mosaic sculptures using a colorful array of CDs, often using the actual albums of the artist depicted, including musical greats Freddie Mercury, Michael Jackson, and Elvis.

The campaign is meant to call attention to internet piracy. Close inspection of the sculptures reveals the layers of CDs used; but pull back and the piece comes to life, the energy and star power that we remember from these musical legends powerful and engaging.
