Ghost in the Machine - Cassette Tape Art
Flickr member iri5 has found a cool way to recycle old cassette tapes, making portrait art of the magnetic tape.
His Flickr set includes portraits of Jim Morrison of The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Ian Curtis (of the now defunct Joy Division), Marilyn Monroe, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Robert Smith of The Cure and Ian Brown of Stone Roses. Great stuff!
The artist is working on Tom Waits and I saw a request for Frank Zappa. I would love to see that.
