29 Mixed-Media Tapes

From Duct Tape Art Exhibits to Packing Tape Accessories

— November 23, 2009 — Art & Design
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.

It’s not all duct tape art, though. Electrical tape, packing tape, and measuring tapes have all been used in these inspired exhibits.

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.
