Laura Labrin's Tape Art
Tape art looks set to become the latest art medium phenomenon. From Erika Iris Simmon's cassette tape art, through to Mark Khaisman's amazing collage work to Bruno Mars' terrible new music video, it's the band wagon to be seen on. I have just found my personal favorite that falls into this category; Laura Labrin's woven tape art.
What I love so much about it, is that it gives you that same feeling as when you walk into a library or a book shop; marvelling at the shear amount of sentences, words and letters that fill the shelves, just as here where Labrin's work holds secret images from numerous video tapes, all hidden in the structure of the fabric... creative poetry in motion.
