What if you were made of tape?
"Despite heavy crowds and hurrying passersby, sidewalks that line cities all over the world can feel like lonely places. But for Mark Jenkins, American-born sculptor and installation artist, public spaces, whether urban or not, are playgrounds for the imagination. Concurrently, in a 2008 interview with Brian Sherwin, Jenkins stated, “…it’s good for people to remember public space is a battleground, with the government, advertisers and artists all mixing and mashing…” Where advertisers and governments may fight to sell their products or gain the acceptance of their constituents, Mark Jenkins constructs sculptures whose subtle narratives represent the way in which the mind interacts with its environment. Using clear packing tape to construct his figures, Jenkins sculptures explore their environments as aware, self-conscious and conversational entities." taken from http://sickoftheradio.com/

The Transformation Project
For this project your goal to take "junk" and transform it into something awesome. Though I personally question this artist's philosophy that drives her work, it is very beautiful. I think we can take the meaning in a different direction. I see taking what was once junk and transforming it into something beautiful as a metaphor for what can happen to our lives. When you look at this artists work look closely and the types of materials she uses and then find your own. Ask friends and family for their plastic cutlery, containers, old computer covers etc. Dive into a dumpster (SAFELY) if you have to. I've done it!!bClick on the image to see more examples.
