Harry Morris creates all kinds of sculptures and wall hangings using stretched 8-track tapes. He was born in New Jersey and grew up travelling with his dad until they settled in Florida when he was 16. As an adult, after a stint as construction house painter, he became a travelling antiques dealer. It wasn’t until later in life that he became an artist, after trying to donate his 8-track tapes to an artist friend. When his artist friend refused the tapes, Morris went on to create for himself an 8-track tape robot. One day an unused piece of tape was stretched, moving the robot around. He created a dog at first. Other sculptures followed. That led him to create the sculptures that he creates today.
