Artist Downcycles Current Movies Into Retro VHS Versions

June 30, 2017

Iamsteelberg recreates contemporary movie posters--but he doesn't upcycle them; oh no. He wears them down, slaps them in plastic covers and throws a few stickers on them, just like the movies you rented from Blockbuster in the 1980s. While many are focused on making retro things look futuristic, it's a nice change to see current media turned retro. If you've never used a VHS, this may not be your jam, but that's your loss!
