Stick ’em up with Message Tape

It’s a tool – it’s useful – it solves a problem – it’s truly interactive and at the same time can be decorative if desired by the user – you only ever use as much of it as you really need – it’s customisable – it can bind things of a completely different nature together – it can be used for heavy-duty utility applications as well as for art installations – it allows you to physically engage with the endlessly re-producible quality of digital information – it makes whatever you have to say look more official.

The tape can be used to label boxes when you move house, to impress your date by re-naming entire streets after her or him within minutes, to put up efficient signage system where no printer is at hand and to teach kids how to spell, and help them to express themselves in a convenient, creative way. It works in multiple languages and therefore is culturally independent.

MY LIFE IS A DEMO – Adam Jarvis

Toronto, Canada

This is a sold out limited edition poster (10″ x 30″) created by Canadian Illustrator Adam Jarvis . The proceeds from the sale of this poster (entitled: “My life is a demo“) was donated to a local community group.

“I was messing around with Adobe Illustrator and started to rhyme off some of the artists from my computer’s playlist. Before I knew it I was obsessed with stringing them along in a chaotic jumble. It made me think of the days when all of my music was on tape. Anyone old enough to remember can sympathize with the painstaking task of unwinding a tape with a pencil to save their treasured mix.

I will always regret throwing away boxes of old tapes. Say what you will about the digital age. My music never sounded better than it did on tape.”
