We all know very well that vinyl records have a sentimental value that goes way beyond just listening to music. They hold our fondest memories of connecting, through music, with our loved ones. Naturally, they represent some of the best periods of our life. Being the delicate relics of history that they are, we try and keep them safe from every little scratch that might impact our experience of them.
The artist Daniel Edlen gives new life to damaged records by saving them from being thrown away - by transforming them into a piece of visual art. Ever since the '90s, he's been painting artists' portraits on their own damaged vinyl records, allowing us an alternative, original, custom-made way to enjoy them for many more years to come.
