This is a close up shot of VCR tape. This was taken at Walsall Art Gallery at an exhibition of kinetic art by Patrick Goodall.
Patrick’s art includes releasing reels of tape, both paper and VCR, to create dynamic sculptures. The reel in this shot took over 5 minutes to unravel Patrick also has an interest in tools and describes himself as “a collector of hammers and other hand tools”.
Patrick’s entire exhibition was rich in texture and shape. I photographed many pieces of his work.
