Erika Iris Simmons is an imaginative painter and sculptor who is driven by an incredible passion for self-expression through art. Her works are often noted for their unique and innovative style that focuses on recycling found materials, such as old cassettes and used books. In this post, we will showcase 12 portraits of celebrities made out of old cassettes, old film and reels. The idea comes from a phrase coined by philosopher Gilbert Ryle, a description of how your spirit lives in your body. In her imagination, we are all, like cassettes, thoughts wrapped up in awkward packaging.
