Tape Installations by Numen

For Use/Numen‘s team  have been doing some interesting installations using nothing but transparent  packing tape to create some huge, self-supporting topologies  that visitors (specially the children ) can climb inside and explore. So far they have four installations documented at their  website.

I think the most interesting one  would be the one they made at Odeon , Vienna for the “Quer” symposium of interactivity , where 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 . so the resulting shape is a (tape) recording of the choreography, which I think is a very good example to remember us all that interactive installations can also be done without any digital media at all.
