Brian Dettmer makes these amazing sculptures out of cassette tapes: They're skeletons. They're meticulous and jaw-droppingly detailed; but beyond that, they have incredibly interesting implications for the metaphorical death of analog media.
So that's just one sample, but I highly recommend you scroll through all his work.
He also has done these exquisite book autopsies. They are such an amazing new interpretation of book arts -- and so, again, meticulous. I am obsessed with them. Could someone send this along to Mare Blocker?
