Jimi Hendrix Tape Art

Someone has decided to make some amazing art using nothing more than old cassette tapes.  These portraits, done by Flickr user iri5, are really quite impressive.  The detail in these pieces is extraordinary, and I can only imagine the absurd amount of time it took to put these together.

Still, it’s a pretty fascinating way of using an ancient analog medium to do some pretty wonderful things.  Talk about repurposing.  There’s a whole photostream of these portraits, but I’ve posted my two favourites for you.  Still, check out the rest of the series here, and is titled Ghost in the Machine.

Nothing beats Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix.  Classic musicians made out of a classical music medium.
