Massive web made with packing tape

Design collective For Use/Numen used about 117,000 feet of tape to make this fantastic web in a former stock exchange building in Vienna. It's strong enough for people to walk on. In fact it wsa made for a dance troupe.

“The installation is based on an idea for a dance performance in which the form evolves from the movement of the dancers between the pillars,” explains For Use’s Christoph Katzler. “The dancers are stretching the tape while they move, so the resulting shape is a recording of the choreography.”

And I thought my wallet and phone cover were impressive!
They could have made it a fully functional web by curling the tape lengthwise, in on itself so that the "stickiness" was facing out on all sides......that'd catch just about anything then ;-)
Oh what's this--EUGH IT'S STICKY, I'M STUCK!!
