Mini Cassette Heads: Unique characters made from up cycled MiniDV cassettes

Having had a long career as a video editor I had acquired a huge amount of MiniDV cassettes, none of which where needed anymore; everybody shoots digitally these days. The cassettes are not very recyclable, I couldn’t find anywhere in the area which would recycle them. So instead of sending them to landfill, I thought about how to re-use them. It was my girlfriend who came up with the idea, the back of the cassettes look like faces and so the idea of Mini Cassette Heads was born.

Each Mini Cassette Head is a one off design, made from a combination of different poses and colours. I design them at home and them have them printed on high quality paper by a local print shop. I then add the MiniDV cassette head and place them in a distressed wooden frame, ready to be photographed and added to the Etsy shop.

I have plans for lots more designs so keep checking back to see the latest work.
