Let No Man Scare You

Humble packing tape gives rise to ghostly forms in the work of photographer and sculptor Mark Jenkins. The Morning News presents a gallery of his pieces, along with an interview that’s well worth a read (not the usual art house banality). As we think of higher & higher tech ways to preserve creations for the ages, it’s refreshing to hear from someone at peace with impermanence. You can see lots more from Mark on his site and here.

[Update: YouTube features Jenkins casting his head by wrapping it in tape–and, amazingly, not asphyxiating himself or Van Gogh-ing an ear. [Via]
