Cassette Tape Paintings

0

When cassette tapes break down, usually they get thrown in the trash. But not for flickr artist iri5. Using discarded cassette tapes, iri5 turns them into works of art in a series called, "Ghost in the Machine," portraying various influential musicians such as Jimi Hendrix (pictured), Ian Brown, and Jim Morrison.

I am an artist who specializes in using non traditional media… old books, cassettes, playing cards, magazines, credit cards… whatever I can find. It feels great to work with strange, older materials. Things that have a mind of their own. Most everything I use has been thrown away or donated at some point. Past its prime, like some of the finest things in the world.

The rest of the gallery won't leave anyone disappointed (Although I do believe her Ghost in the Machine is the best). Kind of reminds me of philinthecircle.

WOW, the artist is a dear friend. I'm so happy people are able to see her work. She's "selling" her stuff on ebay. Here's a link to the Hendrix piece:
