in their series of site specific tape installations, croatian design collective numen/for use showcased their latest creation at DMY international design festival berlin 2010. although their tape installations are often conceived as a kind of parasitic object installed into locations such as old attics, columns of a historical building, or an industrial concrete structure, this time a custom scaffolding construction had to be made due to location change by DMY. the result, according to the foruse/numen, translated into a structure reminiscent of a UFO. the installation was executed within four days (approximately 160 working hours) utilizing almost 700 conventional transparent tapes (45 km of tape).

the tendons of multiple layers of transparent adhesive tape were firstly stretched in between the constructions. the following continuous wrapping of tendons resulted in a complex, amorphous surface through a process similar to the growth of organic forms. the idea for the installation originated from a set design concept for a dance performance in which the form evolved from the movement of dancers between the pillars. the dancers stretched the tape while they moved, so the resulting shape became a (tape) recording of their choreography.
