New-York based artist Christian Marclay is a visual artist and composer who explores the intersection of sound recording and photography.
As a performer and sound artist Christian Marclay has been experimenting, composing and performing with phonograph records and turntables since 1979 to create his unique “theater of found sound.” A dadaist DJ and filmmaker, his installations and video/film collages display provocative musical and visual landscapes. He was born in California, raised in Switzerland and now works between New York and London.

Artist David Poppie makes sculptural artworks using objects such as colored pencils, cassette tapes, matchbooks and tea bags. These pieces above are some of my favorites but there’s much more in his gallery.
Update: It turns out the cassette tape sculptures above were actually a collaboration between David Poppie and artist Roger Sayre. We regret the omission!
Made of recyclable rubber these Haniboi cassette coin purses are off the hook ya’ll. Available in four colors the cassettes fasten shut with embedded magnets. If these don’t sell out in ten seconds I’ll eat my 8-track collection.
Nostalgia has come a long way. The Tape Lamp designed by Denis Krylov and Andrei Hakhovich out of San Francisco is a minimalist cube of plexiglass with laser cut slots containing 100 cassette tapes.
