More in “Tape Art” News: LA-based installation artist Megan Geckler isn’t using your run o’ the mill duct tape like everyone else to make art. Geckler discovered flagging tape, the plastic ribbon typically used by construction workers on site to mark space, in graduate school. When strung together, the ribbons form amazing lines to form massive installations. She uses the architecture in the space as not only a construction to work from and tie on to, but also as inspiration for the form of the piece. Each piece appears so precise and machine-made that it is hard to fathom that each is constructed by hand.

Her most recent piece, titled “Every step you take, every move you make” (seen above) is currently on display until October 31 at The Pasadena Museum of California Art (PMCA). PMCA wanted a piece that represented craft, art and design. With Megan Geckler’s insallation, they got just that.
