This installation, by design firm numen / for use, used 530 rolls of tape measuring 117,000 feet and weighing 100 pounds.

The tendons of multiple layers of transparent adhesive tape are firstly stretched between the columns of an ex-stock exchange building. The following continuous wrapping of tendons results in a complex, amorphous surface through the process reminiscent of growing of organic forms. The installation was executed in two working days…



The idea for 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.
