Digging around we discovered Altanta based artist Erika Iris Simmons. We're featuring her series "Ghost in the Machine", a collection of portraits of people associated with music and cinema and finely crafted by hand with cassette tape and film.
It's  inspired by one idea, in her own words: "At one level we are cellular beings and another we are a single “self.” The single cassette tape I thought of as representing the mind. The tape ribbon represents our thoughts, the data within. Taking that data – those bits of memory – and rearranging them to form what we see as a face is my way of finding a 'ghost in the machine'. "
We leave you with this stunning series. Enjoy!
