Mark Jenkins

In keeping with the DC theme, Mark came on the scene some time back. His work is extremely smart as well as well crafted. Using packing tape (clear kind) he makes objects that feel at once totally foreign and at the same time familiar and places them in public situations. He also creates human forms out of discarded clothing and puts them into disrupting situations in a way of calling attention to the homeless and less privileged. They are so unsettling that many of the pictures of the installations have pedestrians stopped dead in their tracks.

Check them out here.
