Spatial Tape Drawings, Assignment Guidelines

  • Make one (1) three-dimensional drawing. 
  • If you begin your drawing on a two-dimensional surface, you will have to figure out a way to extend a tape line off of the surface into space. 
  • The body counts as a flat surface. If using the body, you will have to extend tape lines from the body to another surface. 
  • Your drawing can exist in space, relying on a surface or object for "anchoring". 
  • The drawing should occupy approx. 5' x 5'. Width and height. Depth is your choice.
  • Think outside the box - ceilings, sidewalks, corners, cracks, doorways, spaces such as under the table, between trees.
  • Photograph the final solution. Take multiple photos as well as detail shots. 
  • Post images on your blog. 
  • Title each drawing.
  • Write a brief statement for each drawing.
  • Present your work to the class. 
  • Use only painters tape.
  • Can be any color, or multiple colors, and any width.
