In his collection titled "Relics," Texan photographer Cody Hamilton has found an artistic use for many once-popular, but now obsolete items of 80s merchandise.

With a simple coat of white paint, the 1980s retail success stories can now enjoy a short revival, even if only for museum value.

Items included in Hamilton's collection include the Rubik's Cube, Atari 2600, Magnavox Stereo, the "brick" cell phone, a Casio calculator wrist watch, RayBan sunglasses, a VHS Video Casette, a ViewMaster 3-D, and of course, Mr. Stay Puft. Stats for Bleached 80s Artifacts Trending: Older & Chilly
