Not much to say here except that this is one of THE dopest artists I’ve seen in a long time, especially as far as her creativity is concerned. Her name is Erika Iris Simmons (iRi5) and she focuses on using recycled materials like used books and cassettes. Most of her materials were either donated to her or were thrown out anyway…check out more of her stuff at her website.
