Given that the world is now pretty much digital, the use for video and tape cassettes is dwindling quite rapidly.Â I guess someone had to figure out how to use all of this tape.Â Turns out someone did.Â Â An artist who I came across on Flickr by the name of Iri5 came up with a unique idea which goes something like this…
I showcase a number of portraits of musicians made out of recycled cassette tape with original cassette. Also included are portraits made from old film and reels. The idea comes from a philosopher’s (Ryle) description of how your spirit lives in your body. I imagine we are all, like cassettes, thoughts wrapped up in awkward packaging.
Sure I guess that makes sense.Â Pictures after the jump…..
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
