Tape scuplture competition

February 8, 2010

The entries from Scotch Tape’s first annual Off The Roll Tape Sculpture Contest are coming in, including the awesomely cute, oversized goldfish (above) and the ominous, beachside octopus (below). Scotch is asking you to vote for your favorite entries, which counts for 10% of the final judging.

The contest doesn’t end until February 28th, so you still have time to submit your own. The grand prize winner, selected by judges Mark Jenkins, Joe Davidson and Jess Nolan (tape sculptors themselves), will receive $5,000 and a case of tape. Guidelines and instructional video are available here.

Mysterious Letters

November 2, 2009


We plan to write a letter to everyone on the planet. Including you. And all the people who look a bit like you. And all the people who look absolutely nothing like you. Everyone. Given the gargantuan scale of the task we’ve already begun, with one (whole) town in Ireland. The letters arrived en masse one morning, bringing widespread smiling and frisky curious shiver. (please see video)

The next town is planned, we want to go further, swifter. We’ve self funded the Mysterious Letters so far via medical testing on ourselves (violins please) and other such horrors. But now there’s this lovely website. The funding will be spent on little stamps, large envelopes, etc. everything we need to research and write to the next entire town. We’re continuing Mysterious Letters in a new mysterious location the minute this is over. All of the hundreds of new letters written will be posted on our blog by the end of November.


Love from,

More than pop-up…

October 12, 2009

Electronic Popables is a project by Jie Qi, a mechanical engineering student at Columbia University. But last summer she spend researching with Dr. Leah Buechley as part of the High-Low Tech group in the MIT Media Lab and there she did this project. You could describe it as a classic paper pop-up book filled with electronic components. The LED’s and other elements are connected to arduino based boards through conductive ink. So when something moves, the circuit closes and something happens. But this videos shows will make everything clear.

Green sleeves

July 24, 2009


It’s 6 a.m. in Kensington Market on a Sunday morning, Eric Cheung and Sean Martindale are busy planting flowers. At College and Augusta, on the two large posterboards on the west wall of Sam’s, they cut the outlines of large triangles deep into the thick layers of posters. Then they pull those triangles out, folding and curving them into a pocket that’s shaped like something between a cone and a pyramid, using a staple gun to firmly attach it to the wall. When all the triangles across both boards are cut and folded and curved and stapled, which won’t be for another few hours, Cheung and Martindale will fill each pocket with dirt and place a plant inside, spraying it with water, turning poster-covered utility poles and walls into makeshift plant-holders.  

Anyone is welcome to use one of our patterns or to make their own variation, as long as it isn’t for a private profit–driven initiative.
