Tape Art des holländischen Künstlers Max Zorn. In Hamburg hängen auch Bilder von ihm (z.B. Straßenlaternen am Schulterblatt).
“The idea to work with tape instead of paint was inspired by a friend who worked as a car designer at that time. These guys often use slim tapes to outline their ideas on large boards. I was surprised to see, how fast they could create stunning sketches with it. During the last years that kind of tape-art also conquered the streets as a new form of urban art. However, it is widely practised by using colored tape on walls or streets.
The idea to use light as a medium was born during a nightly run through Amsterdam. The nice old street lamps with their golden light seemed perfect to be used as an open gallery for the first test of my modified tape-art.
The installation was very simple by just clamping the taped glass onto street lamps and once the light illuminates the many layers of tape, it creates a very graphic picture that seems to be self-glowing.
All that is needed are flexible Plexi-glass, some brown translucent tape and a cutter. The rest is taping, cutting, taping, cutting…”
