Numen/ For Use - For Use used thick transparent sticky tape to create an interactive installation. By stretching, sticking and wrapping thick layers of tape around grounded pillars, beams, trees or whatever standing objects exist in the chosen space Numen/ For Use create a web of tendon tunnels and spaces that can be accessed and crawled through, strong enough to carry human weight. From afar the installation appears like an interwoven structure of bending elastic pipes.
Urodid Moth Pupa
Urodid moths are native to the tropical Amazon rainforest in South America. In some species, the caterpillars spin an intricate, open network cocoon to pupae inside. A strand of silk suspends the basket-like design in mid air.
This wiry structure is thought to aid against fungal and bacterial infections, which develop easily in the hot, humid air. The increased airflow around the pupa decreases moisture and discourages pathogenic growth. Additionally, the suspended structure prevents predators such as ants and spiders from eating the developing moth.
