An Odd Collection of Cassette Tape Portraits

Cassette Tape Portraits

Given that the world is now pretty much digital, the use for video and tape cassettes is dwindling quite rapidly.  I guess someone had to figure out how to use all of this tape.  Turns out someone did.   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.  Pictures after the jump…..
