    Berlin-based artist Gregor Hildebrandt turned to cassette tape as a new medium for artistic expression. He creates elaborate and elegant installations and paintings which incorporate in various ways the different components of a cassette tape, often using the tape itself which is pre-recorded, thus adding a further invisible dimension to his works. Often arranged in abstract patterns, some of his tape works include image collages of icons from the film and music world. The present work is a recording of cult song ‘Faith’ by the Cure, the dark and shimmering effect of the tape echoing the romantic and gothic theme of the song.
