Cas­sette Col­lec­tion

Where Phoenix - - WHERE NOW -

Hun­dreds of vin­tage mu­sic cas­settes line a wall at Wind­sor, ar­ranged end-to-end and top-to-bot­tom. “We wanted to high­light the jux­ta­po­si­tion be­tween Wind­sor’s invit­ing ‘Ev­ery­one is Wel­come’ neigh­bor­hood feel, while still mak­ing sure it still had some cheeky, punk rock spirit,” ex­plains Lau­ren Bai­ley, co-owner of Up­ward Pro­jects (the group that owns Wind­sor). “Plus, as a com­pany that’s ded­i­cated to adap­tively reusing land­mark lo­cal build­ings, we loved the idea of giv­ing a sec­ond life to all the old cas­sette tapes that sit in boxes un­der beds and col­lect dust by memo­ri­al­iz­ing them as an in­stal­la­tion.” As with Postino, the tapes were do­nated by cus­tomers of Up­ward Pro­jects in ex­change for a gift card.
