Erika Iris Simmons makes composite art portraits of people associated with the item that she has chosen to manipulate. She may be more widely known for her series entitled “Ghost in the Machine” where she took cassette tapes and old film reels to produce portraits of famous individuals.
With this particular series she has taken up a new medium, sheet music, to manifest these delicately intricate portraits which are beautifully executed.
Andrew Spitz and Andrew Nip created this project entitled Paper Note. This project creates a tangible waveform from laser cut disks of paper where the user records a message, sound, etc and the system takes that information and analyses and maps it to each corresponding slice. The circles are laid on a sheet, lasercut and placed together with the end result representing the original sound wave.
The talented Kelli Anderson along with her partner in crime Daniel, came up with a brilliant idea to create a paper record player wedding invitation which perfectly suits the soon-to-be-wed couples love for music. The invitation itself is booklet-style and upon folding it in the appropriate manner, the user is then able to listen to the couples original song by hand-spinning the record. How it works, the sound is amplified by the moving of a sewing needle along the grooves of a flexidisc record or can be unscrewed and played on a regular turntable as well. You can see how it works in the video below.
