Funky Tape Floors

tape floors

I visited the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney yesterday with Chelsea from Moments A Day.  My favourite exhibit was Jim Lambie’s Zopob Room lined with coloured vinyl tape. I snapped a few pics with my iPhone. How fun would it be for a play room?! 

Realistically, I wondered how it would hold up with wear. It appeared the tape was covered in varnish and the finish was gorgeous!

This room reminded me of the ways I use tape to decorate around the house (two ideas below) and how when we think a little differently, there is an ability to achieve amazing and cool things.

A cute colour themed area by gathering items around the house and giving it a fresh look. You can find the tutorial here: Tape Book Cover

“Jim Lambie’s Zobop works involve completely covering gallery floors in huge expanses of monochromatic or widely coloured vinyl tape, that gives the impression of multilayered movement, even pulsation. The result is memorising, uplifting and at times vertiginous, as his optical wonderland challenges our propriceptive process.” — Museum of Contemporary Art
