Ghetto Blaster

brass / copper / acrylic
7” x 3” x 5.5”

An 80’s hip hop cultural icon, the boombox, is replicated here in copper and brass. The lid opens to reveal a compartment sized to fit cassette tapes – an almost extinct media form. This piece returns the ghetto blaster to it's former glory as the icon that it is.
