Zip Tie Massimal


Project Description

The Zip Tie Massimal is an installation developed for the 2011 Beaux Arts Ball. It blends in with the lively atmosphere of the party by creating a spectacle in the form of a glowing volume of 20,000 zip ties. As an addition to the Massimals series, it continues with the theme of the petting zoo introducing a new set of tactile sensations and effects. The durable and flexible nature of its zip tie skin allows visitors to physically engage the installation and generate responsive movement.

Design Team: DOTS

Thank you to the Beaux Arts Ball Foundation and all of the volunteers for helping with the fabrication of this installation piece.
