Artist Creates Portraits Of Famous Musicians Using Cassette Tape
Princeton-based artist Erika Iris has created various portraits of famous musicians using recycled cassette tapes.
In her series called ‘Ghost in the Machine’, she uses black shiny tape from the long forgotten audio device and turns it into intricate portrayals of the musicians.
According to Iris, her works were inspired from a phrase by British philosopher Gilbert Ryle—who once described how a spirit lives in a body.
She imagines that humans are just like cassettes—our thoughts merely wrapped in our awkward ‘body’ packaging.
