Taking obsolete analog formats and transforming them to illustrate a form of work relevant to its function (cassette tapes = music, VHS = movies, etc...), Albert Joaquin describes himself as a "part time" artist at best. In fact, he didn't even start making art until about a year ago. He is a cook by trade.

Joaquin was initially drawn into working with this type of mixed media because it was so easily accessible; people everywhere were literally giving it away. Always fond of collecting movies and music, he came to wonder what one does when a newer and better format of technology has come and dominated? Unable to throw away these items and feeling that they still had a lot to offer, Joaquin has begun to transform the almost extinct media into stunning artistic pieces that represent their former use, while saving them from going to the landfill.
