Mark Jenkins is an American self-taught installation artist who uses packing tape as his primary sculpting medium. His first installations were created on the beaches and streets of Rio de Janeiro (2003). He continues today in his native city, Washington DC when he is not traveling around the world to do outdoor installations and conduct workshops to teach his techniques. Jenkins’ projects include the Storker Project, in which small clear tape babies are placed in the urban environment, and the Embed Series, in which hyper realistic anthropomorphic figures are placed on streets to interact with passersby. Indoors he has shown his work in major cities including London, NYC, LA, Tokyo and Sao Paulo.
