Amazing Wall Art Made From ’80s Cassettes and Wire Nuts


(upbeat music) – We ended up wanting to put a have a significant,
large piece in the home in the master bedroom. After we did that project, we didn’t have a lot of
money left over for art. I’m a big music fan. I have a large audio cassette collection. I always thought well
why don’t I do a piece using some of the cassettes. Get some more cassettes and just maybe make a
piece for this house. That piece was kind of trial and error. I had to kind of, I had
an image of James Brown. I pixelated it. And I kinda would put pieces on the wall and then step back. The cassettes kind of act
as pixels to make an image. I’d use my camera phone to photograph it, look at it in small,
kind of and then adjust. It took months to do. I had to find a way to fasten
the cassettes to a canvas. The canvas being giant,
some pieces of plywood. And then I made a frame with metal. Another piece in the house
is the map art piece. When we did the demo, there was floor, a metal floor heater in
the middle of the house between the living room
and the dining room. And Peggy and I always
like the character of it, we just wanted to upgrade the heating and cooling in the house. So we saved the metal grill because it had kind of
a rusty texture to it. And I always liked the grid
pattern for some reason. And ended up finding that
electrical wire nuts, a certain size, fit the exact grid so I could do like a simple pressure fit. It was very easy to make a piece. And I wanted to do
something kind of universal so I ended up doing a world map. The concept of reusing
and repurposing materials was a kind of strong approach for us because they were cost effective. (upbeat music)
