This skull piece is an amazing installation created by Noah Scalin, one of the god fathers of the skull renaissance. The piece is called Dead Media and the skull is made up of around 497 VHS cassette tapes.
Noah is the creator of the immensely popular Skull-a-Day website and loves creating skulls. We are going to be doing a big feature piece on Naoh and his Skull-a-Day blog so watch this space (also don’t say anything to him as it’s meant to be a secret)!
Noah commented on his latest skull creation saying: “Dead Media is created from 497 VHS videocassettes that were given to me by several friends and also culled from my personal collection. The piece, which is approximately 20 feet long by 9 feet wide, was built in the style of the skull in Holbein’s The Ambassadors and meant to be viewed from only one point and is actually quite distorted in real life. The piece is on display at the TCC Visual Arts Center in Portsmouth, Virginia from this Friday through November 1st after which it will be dismantled and used to create new artworks by the students of Tidewater Community College.”
