Australian based artist Scott Marr has created a collection of carved vinyl records. Old vinuyl 78’ records that were manufactured in the early 1900’s to play the sounds of clasical music, have now a new purpose – to be visually communicative remade with a method of carving by burn-markings whit a heated pocker, known as pypografy. The texture of Marr’s carvings on the vinyl records now results in an amazing visual reminder of an era from which they were created, but with a twist, tempering them with natural components such as fire, bones and time gave these old vinyls a touch of our time.
‘What do you do when you have a whole heap of scratched up 78’s? You carve in new information, and hope that the people understand.’ Scott Marr
