Space-Exploring Tape Installations

The Drawing in Space Exhibition Used Tape as a Medium

— January 31, 2018 — Art & Design
This tape installations exhibition recently came to an end. Drawing in Space was on at the Des Moines Art Center from September 28, 2017 to January 21, 2018 and featured work from artists Dave Eppley, Heeseop Yoon, Monika Grzymala and artist collective Numen/For Use.

Photographed by Rich Sanders and organized by Senior Curator Alison Ferris, the combined pieces are "explorations of line and space through the creation of large-scale, site-specific installations using a novel yet humble material, tape." Each of the tape installations existed in a different part of the museum: the whole IM Pei Building, a three-story wall in the Richard Meier Building, the Anna K Meredith Gallery and the floor of the lobby. They included an enormous spider web-like labyrinth, rainbow floor designs, an epic mural and spatial drawing.
Trend Themes
1. Site-specific Installations - The popularity of site-specific installations using unconventional materials such as tape is on the rise, presenting opportunities for artists, designers, and architects to push the boundaries of what is possible in spatial design.
2. Humble Material Innovation - The use of humble, everyday materials like tape allows for disruptive innovation in art and design by showcasing the potential in overlooked materials.
3. Spatial Drawing - The use of space and line in installation art as a new medium creates new opportunities for innovative spatial drawing techniques that challenge traditional notions of art and design.
Industry Implications
1. Art - The use of tape as a medium for site-specific installations creates opportunities for artists to push the boundaries of what is considered traditional art materials and techniques.
2. Design - Incorporating unconventional materials like tape into design work creates opportunities for designers to be more creative and innovative in their approach to spatial design challenges.
3. Architecture - The use of unconventional materials like tape in large-scale installations raises new possibilities for architects to use materials in new and innovative ways when designing buildings and public spaces.
