With a goal to bring an awareness to music piracy, artists Mirco Pagano and Moreno de Turco created this amazing “Piracy” installation revolving around some of the greatest music icons of all time.

Utilizing over 6,000 CDs, and amounting to over 200 hours of manual labor, the two created silhouettes of six different iconic artists made entirely from their own CDs. The music artists featured including some of our favorites like James Brown, Elvis Presley, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, and Freddy Mercury.
