Erika Iris Simmons aka iri5, is a self-taught artist out of Atlanta, Georgia. Ghost in the Machine is Simmons’ creative vision constructed by using film from recycled cassette tapes and old film reels manipulated to feature fantastic portraits of iconic artists and musicians. Simmons states, “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 phrase (ironically) coined by philosopher Gilbert Ryle, a description of how your spirit lives in your body. I imagine we are all, like cassettes, thoughts wrapped up in awkward packaging.” check out a few of my favorites. very cool! see more icons through her site.
