Packing Tape Art at Philadelphia International Airport

Here’s a great reason to hope you get stuck at Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) sometime soon:

A new exhibit at the airport features work by Mark Khaisman who uses packing tape – yes, packing tape – as his artistic medium.

Here’s Frame 18 from Pickup on South Street.

The exhibit is located between Terminals C and D, past the security checkpoint, and runs through November 2009.

See you at the movies!
