WHAT IS TAPE ART?

Tape art is conventional art with making art pieces with tape. 

I make art with tapes for nearly 8 years. The idea however, started way back in 2010.

A bit of a backstory:
I studied visual arts and as film enthusiast I graduated with a short film about migraines, which gained world wide recognition and has been shown on several festivals (nationally and internationally) and been aired between 2010 and 2015 in 500 hospitals in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

After graduation I started working on film sets as everything, really 🤪. And eventually ended up in the art department and work now as an art director / production designer. To see how that looks visit @monmondesign 😊

Back to tape art
When I was working on the first film sets I always was amazed by the colours of the tapes the camera assistants and clappers were running around with and couldn’t take my eyes of them and couldn’t stop thinking about making something with them.

I started making art with tapes first when I moved to London in 2013.

Since then I produce a lot of small and large pieces always working with neon coloured 12mm tapes.

Please share with me your thoughts and let me know what you’d like see or know 💗

For the generic set my Idea was life-size white frames which was placed in a very dark studio as an “exhibition look" set up. And Depending in what genre we were, props or costumes related to the film and/or the presenter was talking about appeared either in one of the frames or the presenter became the actual dressed set. A dramatic and moody lighting was essential for a cinematic and more serious overall look. The show itself is super funny as for each link the producers wanted to have a ‘remake’ of some of very famous scenes (depending on the genre).

6 genres - Animation, Musicals, War, Western, Action and Romance!

For the first season, the budget and time was slightly different and tighter. The script was also very playful so I went with a more colourful and funnier elements for the set. I had mainly props dressing and making the actual set.
