Artist creates haunting figures from old VHS tapes

The VHS may be cool for nostalgia sake, but let's admit that there was nothing good about those videocassettes as a format. I hated the bad resolution, the awful sound quality, and most of all, the Be Kind Rewind sticker. So I wasn't surprised when multimedia artist Philip Ob Rey decided to create these monsters out of discarded VHS tapes. They're not worth saving, and they'd be better off in Europe — as creepy monolithic figures. 

Ob Rey, who is currently based in Iceland, has written a narrative about these haunting creatures, which you can read on his website
