Detail of #TaraDonovan's 'Nebulous' made from @Scotch tape, #NowOnView. “Like fog, it becomes so soft. It looks like it grew out of the floor,' says Donovan, who transforms large quantities of ordinary, mass-produced items into sculptures and installations.
The uneven shape of 'Nebulous' recalls a blown-up view of microscopic mold, or perhaps a scaled-down model of the Milky Way. The title hints at this uncertain perceptual experience created with “invisible” and “magic” tape, which the artist loops into an irregular airy weave. View the work in its entirety at the ICA.
