The Third Space

August 14, 2008


“52 German design students who were handed the knee weakening task of creating a temporary 200sqm world that tries to translate sociological terms like self-portrayal, community and retreat into tangible spatial situations.

As impressive as it is, the real treat is in the details. The entire space was created by lashing together almost 1.3 million cable ties. The result is nothing short of amazing. Visitors are invited to explore the surreal landscape of cocoons, webs and light called “The Third Space” that took a staggering 16,870 hours to complete.”
So beautiful from a distance but gives me the itch close up… It really looks to me like hairy caterpillas… I don’t understand why cable ties, but its really inspiring.
