How much would you pay for packing tape?

Sent by Jonathan Stark on July 19th, 2019

Tonight while making giant balled-up wads of Scotch tape to stick all over our living room furniture, my 5yo randomly strung together the two words “tape” and “art”.

My initial reaction was, “Huh… I wonder if ‘tape art’ is a niche?”

/me googles for 2 seconds

Yep, of COURSE tape art is a niche. Amsterdam artist Max Zorn sells packing tape for about $2,000 per square foot.

Check out the CBS News feature video on his home page:

Still think you can’t specialize?
