The inspiration behind this project came from WWII era paratroopers. My objective was to capture the action and intensity of such a simple and graceful act, such as falling through the sky. I accomplished this by uniformly wrapping parts of my own body with tape, which were later assembled into the skydiver. I then added fluorescent orange Scotch tape to the goggles and backpack for added flare. The overall dimensions are roughly 4ft by 5ft. It is currently hanging under a skylight at my school.

When I contemplated such a creative task as creating sculptures out of tape I decided to use my memory of playing checkers during summers at my grandparent’s house and the joy it brought my family. As an artist, this concept was exciting because I was able to challenge myself with positions such as crossed legs and resting heads on hands. The transparent tape with the bold blackness of the checkerboard stripes and the checkers created an undeniable focus towards the game board and pieces.

This piece shows my love for art & music. The octopus is a one “man” band hoping to earn some extra cash as he entertains. He plays the flute (like me), trumpet, harp & maracas. I filtered the sunlight through blue cellophane, creating an underwater effect. I used 55 rolls of Scotch Packaging Tape. It’s life size, with 660 tape suction cups, & has movable parts like trumpet valves, flute keys & fishing line strings. I made the octopus with a pillow, umbrella & balloons. It was a fun challenge.

The light-weight yet super-strong nature of the Scotch Heavy Duty Packing Tape inspired the whimsical image of the "Tight Rope Tape Walker". Perched high on a tight rope, she confidently balances atop a ball. Twelve rolls of tape later and twenty-four feet up in the air she held her pose trusting her tape strength.

How do I make a homemade iPod touch screen protector without tape or plastic kitchen wrap

Packing tape or plastic kitchen wrap are pretty much the best ways to make a homemade iPod screen cover. Without those, you basically just have to look for other clear plastic and a way to adhere it to the screen.
