RWD: Cassette inspired art

Carrying on what seems to be my nostalgic obsession with appliances pre-CD (check out the cassette tape ties which are pretty impressive), I came across these pieces of musical art while browsing through the Creative Quarterly Journal. I’m loving the Jimi Hendrix and MJ ones the most and love the use of gold on the Berry Davis portrait.

—————————————-

In this series 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.
