Visual Voodoo: People as Street Art

Street artist Mark Jenkins challenges people with his unique sculptures of humans in interesting or compromising situations. Made from packing tape and then dressed in pants and shirts, wigs and jewelry, these “dummy” arrest the passerbys with surprise and delight. Click through the gallery above to see some prime examples of Mark Jenkins’ work. Photos of the pedestrians passing seem completely disinterested in the oddities that they are strolling right past.

Twin beds and sleeping beauties on the sidewalk, headless people staring at the wall. Jenkins challenges the perception and kindness of city dwellers, in a simple and human way. The photographs of it, offer a meta view of this challenge.

Anybody got links that challenge our city dwelling with disruptive human art? I just can’t get enough…

    Chase, you may find this really interesting. Some of them involve people but the focus is chalk art. It challenges the perspective.
