How the Web Was Woven

[via fastcompany]

In honor of  Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, the Julie Taymor helmed/U2 penned sinking ship of a musical, I thought it would be a good time to put up some pictures I saw recently of an art installation made completely out of packing tape.




The Viennese/Croation design team For Use/Newman have built several versions of these cocoons, however this one is from the Odeon, an abandoned stock exchange building in Vienna.  Explains For Use’s Christoph Katzler:

“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. The dancers are stretching the tape while they move, so the resulting shape is a recording of the choreography.”

See below for a video of said process as well as some more shots from the exhibit.





Artist: Elvis Presley/ Album: Walk a Mile in My Shoes
