Using discarded cassette tapes, Flikr artist Iri5 turns them into works of art in a series called, “Ghost in the Machine,” portraying various influential musicians such as Jimi Hendrix, 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.
