This is a piece I made for a fundraiser that opens Friday, Feb. 4th at 7pm. It's at Rio Rita Cafe, 1308 East Sixth Street, Austin, Texas.
The fundraiser is for a documentary about all things VHS. Yeah, I know, who would have ever thought of such a thing? The concept behind Relic (which is probably different then the view of the filmmakers) is that VHS is now totally archaic and useless. The only thing left to do with a VHS tape is to take it apart and make a useless object out of it; in other words, make art out of it.
Magnetic tape, sand, glue, oil, canvas and wood. 15" x 19" x 5"
