Tape Ducks, Giraffes and People by Mark Jenkins

These artistic white duck sculptures are actually made out of tape. Even more impressive is the giraffe reaching up to grab a plastic bag out of tree in urban Washington. The tape dogs digging through piles of garbage are incredible too, as is the oversize phone made of tape. My personal favourite is the child appearing to pull down the sign at a bus stop.

The artist, Mark Jenkins, creates unique designs like these out of his D.C. studio. All of his works are extremely eclectic and are often showcased on the street, like the tape sculptures shown in the gallery. Other non-tape street installations include colorful horses that appear to be made of paper mache, socks and shoes on an upside down shopping cart appear as if they are actually being worn in L.A., and in another Washington installation, a mannequin looks like a real man poking his head right into a concrete wall.
