Mark Jenkins

Mark Jenkins is most widely known for the street installations he creates using packing tape. He works with Sandra Fernandez and together they create characters ranging from clear cast objects such as ducks, dogs and babies to hyper-realistic anthropomorphic beings based casts of his and her body that are installed in ways to interact with the surrounding space. He currently lives in Washington, DC.
