Cassette Tape Skeleton: Honey, I Made You a Mix Tape
July 26th, 2008
This oooey-gooey delicious skeleton is made from the melted down old carcasses of cassette tapes. Artist Brian Dettmer created these guys for an exhibition at the International Museum of Surgical Science, right here in my hometown of Chicago.
While the full-sized skeleton looks like it’s inspired by 80s greats such as R.E.M., The Knack, and The Police, this skull the artist also made appears to have fallen off from too much head-banging. (Note the Judas Priest and Mötley Crüe cassettes).
For some reason, these remind me of the famous face-melting scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
