CD-ROM eyes. Abstract photograph depicting eyes as Compact Disk Read-Only Memory (CD-ROM) disks. CD- ROM disks may be used to store visual, text and/or audio information. Here, the power of CD-ROM to store visual images such as photographs or video is portrayed. Each disk is made of plastic, pressed with a series of fine depressions that represent digitised signals of coded information capable of being read by laser. The encoded layer is coated with a film of metal to reflect the laser light. Apart from having a large storage capacity, CD-ROM enables information to be accessed randomly from any part of the disk. Multimedia disks combine images, sound and text.
