Musicians are not the only ones to be able to animate the dots and lines on a music score. With a scalpel, a glue stick and her patience, American artist Erika Iris Simmons (known under the pseudonym iri5) gives life to paper sheet music by cutting, re-arranging and pasting them. A score of Johann Strauss becomes a beautiful dancing girl, a treble clef is turned into a bracelet on the “Goddess of Music”‘s wrist, and Martin Luther King emerges from the popular American song Amazing Grace. Discover pictures of her work! Goddess of Music (music taken from “ Ein Herz, ein Sinn!” Polka-mazurka, Op. 323″, Johann Strauss II )
