From Mark Jenkins comes this remarkable street sculpture called Embed. It consists of a male figure wearing a hoody sweatshirt with his head stuck inside a concrete wall. Mark creates sculptures out of tape, and then puts clothes on the sculpture. Other advertisers should take notes from this innovative, guerilla street artists. You can watch how his work stops people in their tracks. Just click on the any of two images below (the other one is inside this post), and it will bring you directly to the video file of Mark’s performance (Mirror here). As you see, people are poking it, swerving around it and generally wondering if it’s somebody peeing, sleeping, or something third. This installation was installed in Washington, DC. The artists website is down, unfortunatelly.

    tape sculptures are actually remarkably easy to make. You have one person take saran wrap and wrap it around the body parts of another person, then you cover the saran wrap with clear packing tape, then cut the person out of it. It looks really cool!

    Tape sculptures are actually incredibly easy and can be very sturdy. The way we did them for my school was to put clear tape sticky side up on the model and cover it with 4 or 5 layers of clear tape sticky side down. For a small female it takes about 10 to 15 rolls of tape to do the whole body very sturdy. The only thing is you can not do the whole body at the same time the way we did it. We did one limb at a time then 1/2 the torso and the head and neck are the hardest because the tape needs to be snug and the person obviously needs to breath but it is VERY do able to make a full body…

    Well just thought I would let yall know…
