This is a stick up!

For one night only on March 15, Vienna and Zagreb based architects Numen/For Use created a sculptural installation made entirely of tape at the Design Museum in London. 156 rolls of sticky tape were used to create a structure that looked a lot like those old school films would show the insides of our bodies to look like on a molecular level. Similar to their previous installations, viewers could climb inside and crawl thru the tubes of tape. These sculptures earned the architects a nomination for the Brit Insurance Design of the year award. (First place ended up going to Plumen for the Plumen 001, the world’s first designer energy saving light bulb.) These pics and the video at the bottom give you just a sense of what these installations are like.
