These awesome packing tape installations by Austrian collaborative group For Use – comprising Sven Jonke, Christoph Katzler and Nikola Radeljkovic – are constructed by wrapping transparent tape around elevated columns, which are strong enough for people to enter into.
These site-specific, interactive ‘sculptures’ become places of play, rest and creativity. Comprising around 40 – 50 km of packing tape, each installation resembles giant space-engulfing spider webs, weightless and hung precariously in mid air, yet strong enough to hold the weight of humans. This tension between delicate and frail, and control makes these works unique.
