How many times have you wrestled with one of those unwieldy packing tape rollers when boxing things up to move or to put in storage? Unless you maneuver it just right, the tape won't stay straight and winds up twisting over itself into a useless, tangled ball of frustration.

Artists Sven Jonke, Cristoph Katzler and Nikola Radeljkovic have taken this sticky situation and turned it into a work of art, creating the massive, interactive packing tape installation Numen/For Use.

The cobweb-like structure, currently on view at the International Design Festival DMY in Berlin, was made out of 700 rolls of tape in four days. The artists invite festival attendees to explore the tubes and tunnels of translucent tape, which are strong enough to support a person's body. If that's not a ringing endorsement for packing tape manufacturers, we don't know what is. See more shots of For Use below:
