Reflective Tape Turns Household Fixtures Into Surreal, Glowing ‘Ghosts’

In his latest series of works, Canadian artist James Nizam applies a bizarre, ghostly glow to the common awnings, railings and door grilles found around homes in suburban Canada with simple reflective tape.

Wrapping parts of these homely fixtures in Scotchlite tape and photographing them against the backdrop of the typical household landscape with flash, the tape glows against the backdrop of the dark night, lending an almost surreal effect to the overall picture.

These works are currently exhibiting at a Nizam’s solo show at Gallery Jones in Vancouver, titled “The Mnemonic Landscape”. Check out some of his works from this series below.
