Tapigami artist Danny Scheible shares some of his preferred masking tape rolling techniques, as well as his personal trajectory of working with masking tape.
I think sometimes it's easy to see a technique or art form, even an unusual one like making sculptures with masking tape, and imagine that it sprung fully formed from the mind of the artist, when in truth there is a real process of becoming familiar with a material, letting it talk to you and tell you what it is capable of, and this process takes time. One needs to dwell in the same domain for a long time, doing the same thing over and over again, and progress is often incremental and slow-paced. Listening to Danny talk about the evolution of his craft reminds me of the value of iteration combined with a sense of possibility. I really love the last quote: "A lot of it is playing, and trying to make something I've never made before."
