Erika Iris Simmons (aka iri5) is a great artist from St. Louis, USA.Since her emergence Erika has blended the concerns and methods of conceptual art with craft-making and popular culture to create her own whimsical installations. She explores the nostalgia of the archaic, using donated second-hand items as her prime media.

In her incredible series titled Ghost in the Machine, Erika showcase a number of portraits of musicians made out of recycled cassette tape with original cassette. Also included are portraits made from old film and reels. In this post I am presenting some portraits form this series. You can see and buy more artwork by Erika Iris Simmons at his site.
