'80s Music Icons In Cassette Tape Art

If you are like me, you aren't quite sure what to do with that box of old cassette tapes in your garage. Here is a unique and artistic way that Erika Iris Simmons is using yards of recycled audio tape to create music icons. Check out these stars from the '80s era and for more great cassette (and film reel art) beyond the '80s, visit iri5's "Ghost In The Machine" picture gallery on Flickr.

 And just for fun, check out what she did with an old NES controller!
