Duct Tape Chair

Don’t denigrate duct tape, think of it as a badge of honor. It is a little piece of humanity. It is not something we should hide. It should not be banished. After all, it’s there because of us. And besides, maybe by fixing the chair before it is broken, it won’t need to be fixed later. The Duct Tape Chair is an upholstered chair with duct tape recreated in leather. This piece was originally part of my show Ok As Is. Perhaps more than any other piece, the Duct Tape chairs epitomize my early work.
