Celebrating the audio cassette players in cars, that every so often would mangle your favourite cassette tapes, which then created sparkling streamers in the sun.
Back in 2002 me, friends/collaborators in various parts of New Zealand, enthusiastically all to gather up the fluttering remnants of mangled tape. I provided everyone with a zip-lock bag to contain any found tape(s), a marker pen and a disposable camera to record the locatation.
I disentangled each of the artifacts lovingly (with the occasional expletive) , intensely curious. I wound them into cassette bodies, listened to the audible moments before each tape stopped abruptly, and combined with the photo records, created a forensic insight into the moment the music ran out.
