Portraits Made out of Recycled Cassette Tape

Portraits of Musicians made out of Recycled Cassette Tape
Flickr user iri5 has an impressive series titled ‘Ghost in the machine’ of portraits of well-known musicians (such as Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Ian Brown, …) made from recycle cassette tape.

I am an artist who specializes in using non traditional media… old books, cassettes, playing cards, magazines, credit cards… whatever I can find. It feels great to work with strange, older materials. Things that have a mind of their own. Most everything I use has been thrown away or donated at some point. Past its prime, like some of the finest things in the world.

In this series I showcase a number of portraits of musicians made out of recycled cassette tape with original cassette. Also included are portraits made from old film and reels. The idea comes from a philosopher's (Ryle) description of how your spirit lives in your body. I imagine we are all, like cassettes, thoughts wrapped up in awkward packaging.

Anti-Gravity Guitar Player Illusion

I see you were faithful audience, and liked our new Mighty Magic Tricks website. Glad to see so many new RSS subscribers for both optical illusion feed, and magic tricks feed. As a present, and something to give back, I created new Magic Trick Of The Day – Google gadget! We need few days before Google includes it in it’s gadget database, but for those of you who can’t wait to see it, you can already add it. Here is the procedure: Open you Google Homepage, click “add stuff” in right corner, then click “Add by url” next to search box on second page, and then simply paste this link inside. Push “Add” and Voila! You should have brand new gadget in your Google Homepage. You will see daily new trick, and instantly know that the website has been refreshed.

But lets return to optical illusions again, so we don’t forget what this website was initially for. I give you today’s newest optical illusion. The one submitted by Taylor Cambre, who found it while browsing the net. I believe you’ll have no problem understanding it, and finding what’s so odd in it. Forget about secret anti-gravity devices. If it’s still looks hard, check Back Street Boys illusion, and you’ll immediately understand where the illusion hides. I liked this one because the photo plainly looks nice! Enjoy…
