I just love the metaphor of this little project, done by Dutch designer Carolina Koster. It uses the features of tape (stickiness) to express the concept of getting attached to someone or something and being damaged when you have to let go the things that are dear to you (it can literally ‘tear you apart’).
At the end of 2010 Carolina Koster started this, as a bigger project MESSAGE SENT. The series contains designs (messages) in which language, object and space, form a relationship with one another. Check her out at: www.carolinakoster.com. And… if you have a hard time letting go (like me;-)), buy her tape, it’s therapeutic;-)
