Giant structure made entirely of packing tape stretches across Fed Square. Constructed by Viennese/Croation Design Collective Numen/For Use.

After a week-long build, Fed Square’s giant sticky tape creation, Tape Melbourne is now complete and extending its huge weblike tendons across the Square in a spectacular display.

Specially commissioned by Fed Square, the large-scale, site specific, temporary work is a two metre high structure made entirely of packing tape proving an exciting fusion of art and design. 

It took 3 artists, 15 volunteers 8 days, approx 9 hours a day and 30 kms of tape to build the installation with over 100 people involved overall including engineers, riggers, fencers and OH&S personnel to bring the giant creation to realisation.

Visitors are able to admire the exterior of the structure 24 hours per day and between the hours of 11am to 5pm, two people at a time will be able to explore the interior of the crawl-in installation in a series of supervised sessions.
