Remember Iri5‘s cassette tape art? Those portraits of Dylan, Hendrix and Morrison entirely made out of magnetic tapes taken from cassettes created a lot of hype since she uploaded them on her Flickr account about 3 weeks ago.
Iri5 also decided to auction the Hendrix portrait on Ebay. The bidding ended on the 28th of March and the art work was sold for $470.
As far as the ebay auction, I just put that up as a marketing experiment. Its smaller and less detailed than my usual portraits, but I was curious what it would go for, so I started the bidding at 49.99. I just thought the market would decide.
Well the market decided it was worth ten times its original pricing, and it wouldn’t of surprised me to see it go up some.
Iri5 has been busy producing other cassette tape portraits. Check them out.
