Torry mentioned the installation/environmental artist Christo (and his partner Jean-Claude) in her design presentation today. Here are a couple of video clips to give you a sense of the scale and approach of this “wrapping” work.
The first is a time-lapse or “quick motion” video of their wrapping of The Reichstag in Berlin (1995).
The second is an interview by LX TV with Christo and Jean-Claude about their “The Gates” project in Central Park (NYC), 2005.
Just for another view, the installation artist Francis Hines also works with “wrapping” in his work.
