Designers Spin Spidey-Worthy Webs From Packing Tape

I would like you to see these gigantic cacoons from packing tapes made by Viennese/Croatian design collective For Use/Numen made .

For Use is a team which makes these sculptural spider webs ONLY from packing tapes, and they say that “The installation is based on an idea for a dance performance in which the form evolves from the movement of the dancers between the pillars”.

Cacoons are so strong that the visitors actually enter and look at them from inside. This will not be their last piece, the team will do an installation in Frankfurt in a public space and also in a luxorious hotel

  1. It is very impressive. They are like sculptures and I like the idea that it is based on dance performance. I can imagine that dancers are stretching these things and it gives the sense of tension.

  2. Creating huge spider webs =)) I think the idea and the method are both interesting. It makes the people around smaller. It is as if the size of the spiders and humans changed places. It also reminds me of the VA 202 final project. The material and the created work are different but I guess that the feeling they both give are pretty similar. They both make the audience feel like in a “giant world” =))

    Wow stunning art, I really love the idea, not because I am a fan of spiderman but creating sculpture look alike with stretch tape is really creative and making it so strong even people can travel inside.. amazing.

  3. I love the idea of making spider webs but i loved the material they used even more because it creates a sense of curiosity. It looks sticky and realistic. I dont think that a materail which is not see through could crate the same impact.
