Since cassette tapes seem like a distant memory in terms of media (for the most part), they may as well be melted into art, right? Atlanta-based Brian Dettmer seems to think so, and he makes it look easy.

Dettmer’s human skull creation is composed of 180 cassettes alone. He even uses the brown tape from the cassette spools in some of his ‘skullptures’ such as this pteradactyl-looking piece:

I guess I really have a thing for repurposing cassettes, considering two prior posts on different artists who paint on them and make lamps out of them.
