TapeScape is a massive sculpture and indoor landscape, by artist Eric Lennartson that is inspired by installations by European design firm For Use/Numen. The installations are made completely out of packing tape. The landscape created is an indoor play area for children not just to explore and play, but also to spark a sense of wonder and thought about the unusual and unexpected use of materials and forms.
