Film & Cassette Tape Portraits by Iri5 Are for Sale, and Yes, They’Re Expensive.

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  June 25, 2009


Reader Alex commented on our call for surveyees (take the survey! there’s a prize!) that the stuff we usually feature are cool (of course they are :D) but mostly expensive. Alex, if you’re reading this, I’m sorry but this is another one of those cool-but-expensive stuffs. But they’re not just any stuff, they’re works of art. Remember iri5 and her Ghost in the Machine film & cassette tape portraits? She’s selling her new creations! Yaaay! They’re quite expensive! Yaaay…

The new pieces are still topnotch, like the 12″ x 24″ Audrey Hepburn portrait made of film prints shown above. You can have it for $2,000 (USD). Here’s a 16″ x 16″ portrait of Marilyn Monroe, which is not a part of her Ghost in the Machine series because it’s made from photos of the late artist, as opposed to films or cassette tapes.

This awesome portrait sells for $500, currently the cheapest item on iri5’s store. Right now the most expensive item on the store is this 12″ x 24″ Betty Page portrait, again made from film strips.

Silhouette so shiny. Mmmmm. The price? $3,000. Sorry Alex. Check out the rest of iri5’s work in the store and on her Flickr page.
