Mesmerizing Stop-Motion Tape Video, Ooh…

tapeDutch artist Johan Rijpma has made a tedious, time-consuming, utterly hypnotic video art piece starring… tape! Watch the clusters of clear tape rolls swell and swirl in patterns against projection screens to an ambient soundscape punctuated with remixed sounds of pulling tape and sticky pops.

Apparently, Tape Generations took six months to make. Not since the giant tape web of Vienna have I been so excited about office supplies.
