See Fed Square engulfed by Tape Melbourne - a large-scale, weblike installation made from approximately 30km of packing tape.
Commissioned by and designed specifically for Fed Square, Tape Melbourne will be constructed on site by revolutionary Viennese/ Croatian design mavens Numen/For Use. The two metre high structure is the first of its kind to be shown in the Southern Hemisphere.
Appearing to grow from the external wall of the SBS building, the temporary work is an exciting hybrid of art and design. Watch as the regular packing tape and multiple layers of the transparent adhesive are masterfully stretched between the building and a construction, and marvel at how the continuous wrapping of tendons results in a complex, fluid surface, akin to a growing, organic form to envelop the The Square in spectacular display.
The build for Tape Melbourne begins on 4 September. Come and witness the creation of this awe-inspiring installation and, once complete, explore its interior in a series of supervised walk-in sessions.
Where: Flinders St Amphitheatre
