There’s something about the stickiness of tape that makes it a widely popular artistic medium. Check out these examples, from duct tape art exhibits to duct tape prom dresses.

Implications - Duct tape and other types of tape are being increasingly used in art. With its easy accessibility and relatively cheap price, tape seems to be a natural medium for experimentation. Further, its ordinary -- almost boring -- nature provides a challenge for artists, who want to prove their artistic abilities by manipulating the most unexpected of items into beautiful creations.
