From Retro Audio Pocketbooks to Colorful Edible Sculptures

 - Feb 23, 2013
The humble appreciation people feel for the bulky vintage technology revives itself around the world through nostalgic cassette interpretations in anywhere from food to fashion.

Within a lifetime, people have observed technology skyrocket from computers that were as large as a full room to metaphysical entities we now call data. The physicality of the devices, currently unnecessary in functional use, have given way to fun retro artwork and design.

Some examples vary from furniture pieces such as retro cassette tape tables to art pieces like the the skull cassette posters and the Jimi Hendrix cassette paintings.

These reinterpretations all target a wide audience that perhaps doesn't know the relationship between a cassette and pencil, but still appreciate and sympathize with the simplicity of the old days.
