Video: Johan Rijpma – Tape Generations

We mail tons of packages. On top of little self-sealing envelopes, we'll usually send out three to five boxes of tapes every week, so packing tape is something I feel pretty damn connected to. Beyond the visual beauty of such an elaborately orchestrated and well coordinated video, the notion of packing tape as an instrument, making different sounds when different lengths are adhered to a surface and quickly snapped off. Kudos to Foxy Digitalis for picking up on this particular video; we don't have too much information at hand, although we can say it comes from Dutch multimedia artist Johan Rijpma, who has a pretty well loaded vimeo account you'll want to check out. (via Foxy Digitalis)
