Is your spidey sense tingling? That’ll be because award-winning artists Numen/For Use have transformed the 1830 Warehouse into a giant spider’s web made from sticky tape. Using layers of sticky tape and plastic similar to cling-film, you can clamber into the rafters by climbing up a web suspended between ceiling and floor. Climb through a translucent “stretched biomorphic skin” strung above the ground and crawl along winding networks of cocooning passageways. Inspired by the incredible engineering properties of spider silk, you’ll get an arachnid’s-eye view of the webbed world according to our eight-legged friends.
