A group of installation artists is bringing an exhibition called “TapeScape” to Australia. The art exhibit has once wowed audiences in the U.S. and the Middle East. Now, it’s time to take it Down Under. As the name suggests, the entire installation will be made of tape – sticky tape, to be exact – and some scaffolding. The artists will create slides and tunnels that both kids and grown-ups can enjoy slipping into, crawling through, and sliding down. On top of looking eerily unique and fun to experience first hand, it also provides its audiences a tangible multi-sensory environment.
The concept came from Eric Lennartson, an American artist. He says that the inspiration for the installation came in part from a funnel web spider. The installation is able to maintain its structure and is kept in a suspended 3D state because each part is in tension.
The installation opened to the public on December 5 and will run until February 26, 2017. Interested viewers can see it at the Ipswich Gallery in Queensland. Photos of the exhibit are also posted on the event’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.
