Tape Melbourne - Federation Square
Tape Melbourne is an inspiring installation by Numen currently spanning the West Terrace of Federation Square constructed from 30km of sticky tape. I was fortunate to experience it as I waited to meet Bernie Walsh prior to the Create Design Awards event. I could not help linking this work to the donut selloptape dispenser designed by Catalyst Design Group in 2006. The sellotape donut dispenser was featured in the exhibition STILL09 and was an entry in the 2006 Australian Design Awards. RMIT industrial design alumnus Hugo Davidson is a director of Catalyst. ......That's a lot of donuts!
