Celebrity Portraits Made Out Of Cassette Tapes...

If you have a large collection of old cassette tapes and don’t know what to do with themcheck out these amazing Celebrity Portraits by Erika Iris Simmons. She probably had the same problem and now she even became famous for solving it! Smart people say that every problem is an opportunity in disguise, and this probably turned out to be true.
Erika Iris Simmons (born in 1983 in St. Louis, USA) uses old cassette tapes to create incredibly artistic celebrity portraits. Since her emergence, Erika has blended the concerns and methods of conceptual art with craft-making and popular culture to create her own whimsical installations. She explores the nostalgia of the archaic, using second-hand items as her prime media.
Currently, Simmons lives and works in Atlanta.
