“Down in the Dumps”: Eerie Lifelike Duct Tape Sculptures

Down in the Dumps sculptures and art

UK-based artist Mark Roberts (aka Markrobla) recently presented a public art series he called “Down in the Dumps.”

According to My Modern Met, Markrobla used duct tape and clothing to create figures that resembled someone diving into a trashcan and getting stuck. What’s the point, you ask? Because it’s ART!!!

Roberts has done many of these strange sculptures over the years, but the “Down in the Dumps” series has got to be the best. Imagine the faces of people walking past the lifelike sculptures…Priceless. Check out some of the sculptures:
