Multimediatrix Violet Blue points us to the alluring work of Helen, a 21-year-old artist in Surrey, England who is seeking "patrons" to buy her art and/or pay for her tuition at Leeds College of Art and Design this year.
The interesting feature of this model is in the material used - it is an entirely solid piece, made using nothing but Sellotape. As it stands at the moment I estimate about 100 rolls have been used in the production, with it weighing well over 5kg.Link
I have been lucky enough to have been supported by the company Sellotape, and most of my materials have been supplied by them. I have also been featured in numerous Surrey newspapers in a plea for more tape and coverage, which was successful in gaining me about 40 extra rolls.
