DMY 2010 award winner: foruse/numen

In their series of site specific tape installations, croation design collective foruse/numen showcased their latest creation at DMY international design festival berlin 2010. although their tape installations are often conceived as a kind of parasitic object installed into locations such as old attics, columns of a historical building, or an industrial concrete structure, this
time a custom scaffolding construction had to be made due to location change by DMY. The result, according to the foruse/numen, translated into a structure reminiscent of a UFO. The installation was executed within four days (approximately 160 working hours) utilizing almost 700 conventional transparent tapes (45 km of tape).


The video caught my attention. Boy the building of this structure is crazy! But worth the work! Ahhh. I wonder if it's jumpy-ish!
