Zip Tie Massimal (2011)
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.
