Danny Scheible and his Tapigami crew are the first makers on site, beginning the involved process of installing Danny’s masking tape cityscape.
Tapigami is a 1500 square foot city, made out of 80,000 individual sculptures. Imagine a leviathan created from 4000 wire hangers each covered with different fabric from donated and recycled garments, about 200 connect sculptures that can be kicked thrown passed around. an 12 foot high tree created out of books (it’s Danny’s tree of knowledge).
We’re not sure how big this particular version of Tapigami will be, but from the looks of what’s going on in Grandma’s Attic, it looks like it’s going to be rad.
Guest of Tapigami are welcome, invited and encourage to make there own creations and add them to the walls of the exhibition space. Danny will provide materials and instruction for everyone and share his process and techniques. Scheible acts as a guide to this interaction between self and material, constantly creating and remaking the existing show. Find Danny and Tapigami in Grandma’s Attic.
Here’s some foreshadowing, pulled from a Juxtapoz magazine story on Danny:
