A Gigantic Interactive Installation Made from Packing Tape

Oh, the joys of moving! Boxes and moving trucks, packing and unpacking, labeling and taping! It all seems so single use...use boxes, get rid of boxes, tape up boxes, remove tape from boxes. But then of course I never had a true appreciation for packing tape until I saw this art installation from DMY Berlin.

Using 700 rolls of clear tape across 160 man hours, the design group For Use/Numen used the help of scaffolding to create this cocoon like spider web of tape that was so strong people could climb around inside of it. Now, I'm not saying I would recreate one of these in my own home, but if someone else wanted to build one I'd definitely hang out in it for a while.
