*Occupying the limits: Tape Melbourne* is a panel discussion taking place on Tuesday 13 September to coincide with the tape installation currently being installed at Fed Square.

The panel discussion will explore engaging art forms that fuse the practice of art and design. The event will focus on the intersection of art, architecture and urban intervention, bringing together some of Australia’s leading art and design practitioners with the team from Viennese/Croatian design collective, Numen/ For Use.

The discussion coincides with a giant, site-specific installation constructed from 30km of packing tape by Numen/ For Use. The group are bringing their large scale, experimental art form to Melbourne to construct a giant web made from packing tape that will extend across Fed Square. The installation will appear to grow out from the external wall of the SBS building. Multiple layers of the transparent tape will be stretched between the building and a construction, creating a fluid, tendon-like surface that will envelop the Western Terrace. The installation is expected to take 4-5 days to complete (commencing on 4 September), and use 520 rolls of clear packing tape.

Panellists include:
*Christoph Katzler*, Numen/ For Use
*James Stoughton*, Workshop Architecture
*Professor Marie Sierra*, head of Visual & Performing Arts at the University of Tasmania
*Lou Weis*, creative director, strategist and artist
*Moderator: Domingo Robledo*, Editor (inside)

*Where* ACMI Studio 1, Fed Square, Melbourne
*When* Tuesday 13 September, 6.30-7.30pm

*RSVP essential* to matt.jones@fedsquare.com
