“Tape Deck” Works by Erica Iris Simmons
I came across a “mixed tape” in my junk drawer, the other day. The funniest part about it was that I had no device on which to listen to the time capsule of my (ehem) younger days. On the outside, scribbled in Bic, it reads, “Holiday” (I presume by Madonna) and “The Electric Horseman” (at one time, a favorite soundrack.). Even then, I knew how to create an awesome “mashup”. Fishnets and cowboy boots…still hot!
While useless, I couldn’t bring myself to pitch the relic. I stuck it back in the drawer beside some batteries and a Palm Pilot charger.
Artist Erica Iris Simmons reels in a better idea with her celluloid collages. Turn up the volume!
Love these so much. I do always respond to the ‘re-use’ kind of work, but I al so love that they’re 3-d
Your mother still has a tape player – unless it’s an 8-track!!!! And a converter to digital! Aren’t you glad I am a bit of a packrat!?? Well, maybe not!
