A great fun older (2002) art archeological project, where myself and friends(collaborators) picked up discarded audio cassette tapes from various parts of New Zealand. I provided each collaborator with a zip-lock bag to contain any found tape(s), a marker pen and a disposable camera to record the information about the location of the find.
I disentangled each of the artifacts lovingly (with the occasional expletive) , impatiently curious. I wound them into cassette bodies, listened to the audible moments before each tape stopped abruptly, and combined with the photo records, I was able to create a synthesis of the moment of termination.
