Experience the wonder and excitement of the unexpected use of materials in this fun, interactive exhibit.

“TapeScape”  art installation / play exhibit is an indoor climbing, sliding, rolling landscape made of more than 50 miles of packing tape stretched over a two-story steel frame. The premise is very simple: Stretch plastic shrink-wrap onto a steel pipe structure and then wrap and weave many layers of tape to strengthen it. The installation relies on the tensile strength of packing tape and creates a full-body, multi-sensory experience.

Created by artist Eric Lennartson, this is the third installation of its kind at the Children’s Museum (“TapeScape” debuted in Pittsburgh in 2013 and returned to Pittsburgh in 2016).
