Numen / For Use, a Croatian-Austrian design collective, were invited by local curatorial team BAU, to participate in the second edition of “Art & Nature”, a spring festival in South Tyrol, Italy. The result of that invitation was this large scale site-specific art project, named Tube Merano.
Here is a look at the planning model they created.
Once the plan was put in place, the install began.
A large net structure was lifted into the trees.
And at the same time, anchored to the ground.
The finished product is a tube-like netted structure that lets you climb through the trees.
The tube spirals up through the trees.
It is large enough for adults to climb through too.
The installation will be in place until June, 2016.
