‘tape installation’, odeon vienna

‘tape installation’ by for croatian design collective use/numen is made of  tendons of transparent multi-layered  adhesive tape which are stretched between the columns of an ex-stock exchange building. the continuous wrapping of tendons results in a complex, amorphous surface through the process reminiscent of growing of organic forms.

530 rolls of transparent self adhesive tape (35600m, 45kg)

the idea of the installation originates in a set design concept for a dance performance in which the form evolves from the movement of the dancers between the pillars. the dancers are stretching the tape while they move, so the resulting shape is (tape) recording of the choreography.

presented by vienna design week embassy, ‘tape installation’ will be showcased at DMY 2010 in berlin. a previously exhibited variation of the ‘tape installation’ at has been featured on designboom. for more information, see here. via designboom.
