Sarah DiNardo doesn’t like calling herself an artist, but her creations -- rolled from countless yards of tape -- evoke everything from barnacles to bones. Boston-based DiNardo talks of her enduring love of tape in this video by Gnarly Bay Productions, a Rhode Island filmmaking team led by Dan Riordan and Dana Saint. "There’s nothing like a fresh sticker when you pull it off of something," she says, "and as soon as it loses that crispness, I can’t be bothered with it … Everyone has their vice, and I guess my vice just happens to be rolling tape.”
Remarkably, other examples of tape art abound, including packing-tape menageries, Scotch-tape-squished faces, reinterpretations of scenes from the Sistine Chapel, and the ever-classic duct tape prom ensembles.
And if tape art isn’t your thing, it’s also worth watching to see DiNardo levitate at 2:34.
