TapeScape

2 – 24 December 2019 - 

Indicative Rate * AU$7 to AU$20

TapeScape is a massive sculpture and indoor landscape by US-based artist Eric Lennartson, inspired by the installations of European design firm For Use/Numen. This latest and largest TapeScape is a unique, tri-level, multi-sensory STEM play environment made entirely from over 115 kilometres of clear packing tape and a scaffold support. The landscape created is an indoor play area for children not just to explore and play, but also to spark a sense of wonder and thought about the unusual forms and the unexpected use of an everyday material.

The shapes and forms of the TapeScape exist in nature: in spider webs or caves and also in the built environment in bridges and buildings. For all the Science, Technology, Engineering & Math principles expressed in this exhibit, it is the improvisational design and composition that are most inviting to the viewer.

Since his first TapeScape 2011 at the Children’s Museum of Southern Minnesota, Lennartson has created TapeScapes in cities such as San Jose, Pittsburgh, Winnipeg, Jersey City and Dubai.

Covering 130 square metres and taking Lennartson and a team of gallery staff three weeks to complete, this TapeScape is an Australian exclusive at the Ipswich Art Gallery this summer.
