Net Blow up is a further development of the NET project both in means of construction and appearance. The project evolved from interest in transparent artificial landscapes of ephemeral architecture in public space. Net consists of multiple layers of flexible nets suspended in the air. The flat layers of the net are subsequently connected one to another on counterpoints to form a "floating" open for visitors to climb in and explore. The result is an op-art social sculpture (or a community hammock) relating to topics of instability, levitation and regression. The visitors should be able to enter the installation at "ground floor" and climb the transparent structure to the highest level. Or just hang around like in an oversized public hammock.

Numen/For Use is a collective working in the fields of conceptual art, scenography, industrial and spatial design. The group first formed in 1998. as a collaborative effort of industrial designers Sven Jonke, Christoph Katzler and Nikola Radeljković under the banner For Use. In 1999. they establish Numen as a collective identity covering all projects actualised outside the sphere of industrial design. From 2004. onwards, after setting up a large scale site-specific project for the production of “Inferno” in the National Centre for Drama in Madrid, Numen/ For Use become intensely involved with scenography. Further realisations in theatres across Europe ensue. Since 2008. the collective turns its focus towards configuring objects and concepts without a predefined function, an activity resulting in the more hybrid and experimental works such as the N-Light series and Tape Installation. Parallel to these publicly exposed ventures, the group wins several international awards for their accomplishments in the field of industrial and set design.
