DESIGN: Ghost In The Machine

In this digital age, the purpose of cassette tapes, VHS tapes and some paper-printed sheet music have been made obsolete. Instead, they are now dysfunctional but nostalgic objects. Even if most of us don’t have the equipment to play them, these objects hold a sentimental value and are hard to let go of. Unfortunately, there’s also that voice that says, “Get rid of them! They’re only adding to the clutter.”

Thankfully, Iri5 has found a way to upcycle these objects and help us keep what we hold dear. She becomes the composer by delicately deconstructing each audio component and reconstructs it into a beautiful piece of artwork to hang on our walls.
