The tape that binds us – Sun K. Kwak’s Enfolding 280 Hours

One of the most interesting exhibitions to date seems to take focus on one of the most mundane items in our everyday lives: tape.  Korean-born artist Sun K. Kwak has taken simple black masking tape (not duct tape which binds the universe together) and covered what is near three miles of white walls in it.  The creative Kwak has then shaped and molded the tape into vast, flowing murals that guide you through the Brooklyn Museum.  Below is a shot of the beautiful imagery she’s managed to create using the black masking tape.



If you’re in the New York/New Jersey area or you’re looking for a reason to visit the Big Apple you should make sure to stop by the Brooklyn museum and see this event before the wonderful tape-art is taken down.
