VHS and Cassette Tape Art Representations

If you are a fan of Big Lebowski, you would know all about the “dude” in question. He is not only one of the most macho characters, but also is extremely popular amongst geeks who want to be like him. Thus there are several art works which are inspired by him character, among other famous characters and celebrities. Here is a Big Lebowski VHS Tape representation that was created by Erika Iris Simmons.

Iris is known for her experimental art with VHS tapes, and this one totally blows your mind. It must have taken quite an effort to create The Dude’s face exactly the same way as it appears in the movie. This 1998 American comedy film has gained a cult status amongst the youth of today, and this art only proves how popular he really is.

The VHS tape art is truly remarkable, and is a great tribute to the character of Big Lebowski. You could also check out other Big Lebowski influenced designs that we have featured earlier. The Big Lebowski Costumes could be used by those who want to emulate the Dude. The Big Lebowski Key Chains are perfect gifts for geeks who like this 90s movie.

Meanwhile, she has also created the same VHS  “Ghost in the Machine” art for other prominent figures as well. Here are some of them:

Alfred Hitchcock

Robert Smith (The Cure)

John Lennon


Jimi Hendrix


Bob Marley


Bob Dylan


The Clash

The creation of these “Ghost in the Machine” VHS representations of various timeless artists is a metaphor for the impermanence of fads and technologies, but the permanence of legacies that these artists left behind, just like the obsolete VHS tapes did.
