I love how when the shadow moves, it gives the tape a 3D effect.

Thanks, I went back an hour later and took some more, maybe I'll post a few.

quit trying to play god, as soon as you can create a tape that moves in the heliocentric patern of our galaxy, then i might start worshiping you. until then i will just enjoy the art.

i love this.

the funny thing is that in the Williamsburg pic with the trashcan, there is a squid or octopus drawing that I see all over SF. same artist, leaving their mark in all the big cities, not unlike the tape and paint phenomenon. lets do some in SF!

If I ever make it down there, you're on. Maybe it will catch on like those "Andre the Giant" stickers and we'll see blue tape shadows all over.

I like the photo of the taped bottle event as art itself

thats a copy cat of a guy named Ellis in brooklyn who started doing that with chalk years ago ;)

It might blow your mind, but in art sometimes two people might come up with similar ideas independently. This post is also from "years ago".

I totally agree! I happens all the time in advertising when creatives located in different countries come up with exactly the same idea at the same time.
By the way, I also love what you do :-)

I see your doorknobs every day on the side of the VCU arts building on my way to class. Now I know who did it!

Joe said...

Thanks Elvir. Sarah Ann, I am shocked those are still up. Usually they are removed within a day or two or if I am around I come back and clean them up when they start to fall apart. I made that when I came out to visit Jared Clark at VCU.
