A friend shared these with me today. Apparently they are in the YAHOO! Blog.
Mark Jenkins creates these awesome installations out of packaging tape.
“Once I have the finished sculpture, I’ll put it out on the street or in nature or somewhere where it interacts with the environment,” he says in an awesome making-of video (below). “Really it’s the idea of turning the street into a stage , so this urban theater has a life of its own.”
If anyone is interested, Jenkins is judging the Scotch off the Roll Tape Sculpting contest which wraps up March 24th.
Check out more of Jenkins’ work!

I love those carrousel horses, Megan. That was very imaginative to construct them around the trees. I wonder how long they will last, left out in the weather though. Still, an interesting concept. All are cool, but the horses caught my eye.
I love this! The carousel horses are especially cool!
Amazing! Havent seen anything quite like this before
This is amazing… Art is great never makes something new and impressive. Thank you, with my love, nia
I’ve used this technique with kids. While the taping part is relatively simple, the challenge of where to put the sculpture and why is always more difficult than expected. These are terrific examples that make ART.
love the horses and dogs! how creative and well done, impressive!
