“Skull-ptures” Made from Melted Cassette Tapes

Got some old cassette tapes lying around? Trying to decide what to do with them? Well, these images from the Bizarre Skull-ptures Made from Melted Cassette Tapes post on Visual News may just give you some ideas!

“What would recording artists think if they knew cassette tapes featuring their music were being transformed into bizarre melted sculptures? I’m guessing the guys from The Kinks might be a little impressed their album’s remains are melted into the skull of a fake dead bird – yeah, that’s pretty rock and roll! Other artists might take it a bit personally, perhaps a symbol of their long past career.

These are the work of Georgia based artist Brian Dettmer, better known for his book sculptures which tell new stories through their intricately carved pages. Dettmer creates most of his work from sources that no longer have a clear use, repurposing them and controversially giving them life anew.”
