Sticky Business: Packing Tape Spider Web
Packing tape has gotten MacGyver out of many a jam, but he never managed to make an entire home out of the stuff. So he could probably learn something from Viennese/Croatian design collective For Use/Numen. The team uses nothing but packing tape to create huge, self-supporting cocoons that visitors could climb inside and explore.
At the last installation inside Odeon (above), a former stock exchange building in Vienna, the group used nearly 117,000 feet and 100 pounds of tape.
Oh man, just imagine: you're climbing around in there, laughing and pretending you're a trapped fly, when all of sudden -- REEK! REEK! REEK! -- that little freak from the Exorcist comes spider-walking down the web towards you. I don't know about you, but I'd totally
shit myself have no choice but to exercise her ass. ON THE ELLIPTICAL, DEMON-SPAWN!
Hit the jump for several more pictures and a worthwhile time-lapse of the web being constructed.
