SIDEWALK COLOR SESSION
Working after hours under a full moon. This color study started with a pattern that got purposely broken off. Chaos broke into the order, and this is the result.

AD HOC | Temporary Art Installation

"Ad Hoc" is an exploration of the basic existence of physical objects.
All objects and spaces, planned or serendipitous are already occupying a physical reality that the observer sees and perceives. Perhaps, and most likely, the observer already takes this reality for granted. Tapebombing takes the approach of seeking the essence of these objects and spaces. It is a focused meditation on searching for the platonic ideal. Once its basic contours are identified, the color media highlights the features of the ideal form.

"Ad Hoc" will be on display during November 2013.

What came first, the chicken or the egg? The painting or the palette? The colors or the rage? Muted loudness. Translucent presence. Ghost.

"HEREKE BOMB" | TAPE TRACING in collaboration with Odabashian's  archives.
This time it was an antique Hereke rug, woven in the city of Hereke (Turkey) more than 100 years ago, that provided the inspiration for an ambitious color study. The contemporary composition celebrates the traditional art of oriental rug making, by bringing back color and life to the front while leaving a glimpse of evidence of its origins.

SUMMER PACKING 

"It is the color that leads me on,
the wild color
that sets the coolest woman to sing
at the top of her lungs
laugh like a fool - it drives the
woman to dancing… it even
tempts her to mix out shades
better never mixed”.

Ok… that’s not a real quote, but I think that if Homer’s hero would have been a heroine, this is what she would have packed as she sailed the Aegean to get back home. A suitcase full of Tapebombed goods!

Color for summer, anyone?

"ALTER EGO" | Christian Magaldi Architecture Studio

It’s Cruz de Mayo guey! 
Say what?
No building activity today…

Magaldi’s recent migration to one of Miami Downtown’s most beloved buildings (The Huntington Building) had to be celebrated in fresh style. What better way to inject vibrant energy into the space than with a color filled tapebomb installation?

We chose today (May 3rd) for its symbolic meaning in Mexican culture: the Cruz de Mayo holiday. The Fiesta de las Cruces is celebrated in Mexico mainly by guilds and unions involved in construction. A cross is adorned with flowers and paper is placed in a high position on a building in the process of construction. The workers then celebrate with local cuisine and alcoholic beverages such as tequila, mezcal and local beer.

No cross with paper was adorned here, just a promising space with colored tapes.

We had a great time during Sobe Local's launch event at the don’t-throw-it-away-I’ll-take-it furniture filled Freehand Hotel.
