Lorenzo Durantini: 2,216 VHS Tapes

Mixed media artist Lorenzo Durantini uses VHS videotapes to create impressive sculptural installations. For his series of large-scale works titled "2,216 VHS Tapes" and "445,368" Lorenzo created everything from 5-foot VHS towers to rooms full of 250,000+ feet of old tape. “They have just passed their point of cultural utility and are transformed into a sort of contemporary relic,” Durantini says, “I hope they provide an alternate and somewhat critical viewpoint of the structures that surround image production and distribution.”
