Ghost in the Machine

tapes portraits

Represent to your attention very unusual and symbolic series of art works created by imaginative artist Erica Simmons – Ghost in the Machine. Made out of recycled cassette tape with original cassette these works show portraits of legends of music of 20th century. Old tapes and pictures of musicians… From the words of Erica "The idea comes from a philosopher’s (Ryle) description of how your spirit lives in your body." Photos are not very quality but it’s not so important – music lovers will appreciate these art works highly!

    I admire the effort for painstakingly create beautiful pieces of artwork from outdated technology! Love’em!

    Hendrix is a total FAIL but others are great! Some of the choices are dubious, obviously, but to each his/her own.

  5. Farrah

    Astonishing, hands down.

    …Although I don’t understand what Paul Griffiths did that was grand enough to be graced with being a piece of art… but to each his own.
