Ghost in the Machine by IRI5 (Erika Iris Simmons) seriously blows my mind. As a full-time independent artist based in Atlanta, Erika likes to collect random things found at garage sales and make them into composite art. These pieces were made using cassette tapes and old film reels.

More examples of Erika’s work and her process can be seen on her Flickr page. Super cool.

By the way, this reminds me Bruno Mars’ video Just The Way You Are. And just because I really like the song, here’s a video for you.
