One Skeleton That's Taped To The Bone

Even though it’s not a DIY, this weird invention from artist Brian Detmer is truly a magnificent creation that might leave a few people in awe.

Sure it looks like an ordinary skeleton, but it’s made from melted audio cassette tapes! Titled “Skull #11”, the project is pretty amazing to look at because of the detailed work. Detmer is known for altering pre-existing media and turning them into works of art, but this just tops them all!

Currently on display at the International Museum of Surgical Science in Chicago, the Cassette Tape Skeleton would be a great treat to see in-person. Not because pictures aren’t enough, but it would be entertaining to see what nostalgic cassette tapes were used for the project.

Cassette Tape Skeleton

Unfortunately, this is not currently on display at the International Museum of Surgical Science in Chicago. It was a part of an art exhibition that ended in July 2007.
