A tutorial
(taken from Jenkins’ website
tapesculpture.org)
Wrap model with cellophane, then
with 2 or 3 layers of packing tape…
“Release” the model with
razor.
Match seams and tape back
together.
On street art…

"There is opposition, and risk, but I
think that just shows that street
art is the sort of frontier where the
leading edge really does have to
chew through the ice. And it's good
for people to remember public
space is a battleground, with the
government, advertisers and
artists all mixing and mashing…”
Collaboration with
Greenpeace
More Street Art…
“Maybe I’m not
an artist…”
he says, "but like an amateur
psychologist doing amateur
field studies using tape men
as a medium."
