Giant Cocoon Made From Packing Tapes

If you like Johan Rijpma's scotch tape animation Tape Generations we featured on the blog, you'll get a kick out of this: a gigantic cocoon made from packing tape by design collective For Use/Numen:

The team uses nothing but packing tape to create huge, self-supporting cocoons that visitors could climb inside and explore. [...]

The installations, which look like the work of horrifyingly large arachnids, grew in scale and scope as the year progressed, first deployed inside a small Croatian gallery, then an abandoned attic during October’s Vienna Design Week.

At the last installation inside Odeon, a former stock exchange building in Vienna, the group used nearly 117,000 feet and 100 pounds of tape.

FastCompany has more pics as well as a video clip showing us how it was made: Link
