Playful Net Installation Provides Unusual Climbing Experience

This playful net installation is an interactive sculpture created by Croatian-Austrian design collective Numen/For Use, which consists of Sven Jonke, Christoph Katzler and Nikola Radeljkovic. It is a site-specific project developed particularly for a corridor in the OK Center for Contemporary Art in Linz.

Vertically arranged netting hangs down from the ceiling and is stretched in and out of the space to create interesting pathways for visitors to navigate. The nets are attached to large sandbags that weigh the material down and stretch it into the collective's desired arrangements and shapes.

Visitors can enjoy the experience of walking in mid-air without much support underneath their feet. As they walk, climb, and rest in the constructed walkways, they experience the unusual sensation of their fabric ground swaying with every movement.
