4,000 DVD Cases... Ideas? Answered

I picked up 4,000 *free* used black 14mm DVD cases from a movie store that is no longer open. We have a large industrial unit so I was thinking of making a dividing wall.

Any ideas on how I could do this, or any other possibilities?

wallpaper/ wall covering of some sort

4000? that is heck a lot...

you could make a movie/animation and create 4,O0O copys and sell them for like a dollar or two

they would make great shingles for a shed.

Oooh. That's good. I've been paying $6 for 120 skeet.

What kind of industrial unit do you mean?

Poke / melt / drill a hole through each corner of the boxes (if you have access to tools like drill-presses you could do several cases at once). Use short lengths of wire or string to tie them together, and then hang them like a curtain. As an added bonus, it could become an informal display area, with people slipping photos or notes in behind the transparent out layers of the boxes.

Space out nails or screws along the ceiling and floor. Take a spool of monofilament fishing line and zigzag up and down across the room affixing to the screw/nail heads. All you need to do is to just open and clamp down on the line to hold it in place.

you could use some plastic model glue, or epoxy, and glue them like bricks?
