Roller Coaster Crash
Providence, Rhode Island
Tape Art Crew: Michael Townsend, Original Tape Art Crew
Tape Art originated as a mode of story-telling based on the aesthetic of police chalk outlines. These first narratives were drawn and removed on a nightly basis so that every morning the people of Providence would wake up to find the silhouetted evidence of things that happened while they were sleeping.
Working with the police outline mentality, many of the murals were crash scenes, like this humorous roller coaster crash. Other crashes included chariots, boats and Noah's Ark.
