Tape is an interesting commodity around our house, my son is completely fascinated by it and can go through an entire roll of packing tape in one sitting. So I hide it. It doesn't work, he inevitably finds it and creates his own brand of artwork with mixed media and a heavy emphasis on tape including his own version of sculpture. It's always been that way, I'm not sure quite what it's all about, but even at the store, he asks for tape. I do indulge him sometimes, I love to see his creativity in action, but at $3-4 a roll, it adds up and I don't care for the waste. When I saw these tape sculptures by Mark Jenkins, I thought, maybe I should give in to this more often.
