Christian Marclay cut and glued pieces of different records together to form various compositions of complete records composed from two or more different records. These Recycled Records were more than visual pieces; Marclay made them functional so he could use them in live performances, they do the work of the DJ for him. I simply found this series to be the most visually stunning, and several of the records he did, such as the black/pink stripped one, were as interesting to see as I’m sure they would have sounded. Additionally, its impressive that he could cut vinyl records and glue them together so that they still worked.
