Edward Krasinski's tape line

I went to the Tate Modern today and came across Polish artist Edward Krasinski who used blue scotch tape in his work around the 1960s. He first taped it in his immediate surroundings - his studio, a tree - at precisely 130cm from the ground.

The blue tape in his studio.

This piece is called Intervention 15 done in 1975. It is a depiction of a 3 dimensional object on a 2 dimensional surface. The tape becomes part of the piece itself and then continues along the wall.

The power of the tape, a continuous line for artistic contemplation.
